    moved my 6 week old chicks into the coop for the 1st time (these are my 1st chickens). all locked up.
    checked on them twice already. lol. cant wait for morning to let them out. will they go into the coop by themselves
    now, or will I have to put them in myself a couple of times?

  2. I share your enthusiasm. Well, I should say I used to have the same enthusiasm of gettting up ever morning to let them out. Now I do like to sleep in until 7 once in a while. [​IMG]

    Wish ya the best.

    They will certainly learn where the "home" is. It make take a few times, but they will get it! Enjoy them!

    They'll figure it out. Enjoy them!
  5. I just integrated 4 pullets into my flock and after 4 days they started going in by themselves.

    thanks. every day more go in by themselves. 6 yesterday, 8 today. much easier then then catching
    and putting them in myself.
