    I'll be moving my 5 week old chicks and guineas to their new coop this weekend. Any tips for helping them deal with the stress??? I have to move them because the brooder they are in has gotten too small. Every time I lift the lid to play with them or feed them, they decide they want to fly out. (I have 61 chicks & 8 guineas)

    They may be so happy about having room to move around that they won't really feel stressed. Give them some treats right after the move.
