    Hi,

    Trying to get ready to move the chicks to the coop in a few weeks. I'm wondering, when I move my chicks to the coop do I keep them in there for a few days so they know it's their home or can they also use the run immediately?

    Thanks!

    chickens really Overrun With Chickens

    Leave them in the Coop for about 5 days and then let them use the run also...Then they will know to go to the Coop..It will be home..:)



    Cheers!
