    Hi All
    My chicks are ready to move to coop. Should I move them during the day or at night?
    Thanks for the info.

    The day? Thats what I did. And remember you have to 'train' them to go into the coop at night and when you need them too.

    Well, every night before the sun went down I would corral them back into the coop and close it. Also, don't let them free range for 1-2 weeks and keep them in the coop the whole time so they know it's home. Its very simple and not hard, so it should be a piece of cake [​IMG]
