My chickens are about 2 1/2 months old now and I put them outside in thier new house/run and they are scared as hell lol. Some of them sleep inside the house and others on the ground in the run. Is it normal for them to do this? I have a light in the house for them yet only a few go in at night. Should I put a door on there entrence way to the house and close it at night when they all go in or does it not really matter? At what point should I start giving them grit and oyster shells or is that stuff already in their food? I am using Dumor chick starter. Thanks for any coments or input.
