    Had the new pullets less than a week and I am homing them to their new coop. It seems to be going well but they are very skittish and nervous but I am bribing them with treats and I hope they come around. I have 6 RIR's and they are beautiful birds. They are approximately 12 weeks old. Pretty excited to see how this plays out. Good Luck out there!

    It takes awhile for birds to settle into a new home and feel secure again. You can show them love by bringing small amounts of treats now and then when you visit them.
