To quote MPC "Hey, chicken addicts! Did you outgrow that eenie-weenie coop you started with last year?" Yes that was me, I purchased a Saltbox chicken coop last year for my first group of mixed breed chickens (5). And now with chicken mathmatics, I had to move up in size to the 12 to 15 chicken coop (purchased from another company). With 24 square feet of space not including the next boxes, this coop is one that I can grow with! Once my new chicks (6 at 4 weeks old) grow up alittle more I plan to use the salt box as a separator until I feel they can sort out the pecking order in a decent way. My problem is, eventhough my pullets are laying some in the larger coop, they still like going ontop/inside the smaller coop. Today, I found two eggs in the smaller coop and none in the larger coop. How do I evict the pullets from their orginal coop? I have tried to place them each in the larger coop over night and lock the door. The next morning I let them out but they return to their old resting places and at night they refuse to go back to their new coop. Any inputs on this matter. Thanks in advance!!
