I will have the new coop done this week which will give the girls all 8 (for now) more room they where in a 4x8 coop now will have doulbe the space, what I was wondering is there old coop is about 10 feet away from there new one. I will leave them in the new one for a couple of days to get used to the new house. but I let them free range from time to time. will they try to go to the old coop to roost when it gets dark or will they go back to the new one. I will have the old one locked up just dont want them running in circles trying to get in, the new coop will also have a 16x8 run, also was thinking that I should just leave them there until I can get rid of the old (2 months) coop, the ladies are about 15 weeks so they should start laying 4-5 weeks so I been told from post I have read, any help would be great as I am new to this, and you folks have baled me out with answers many times ,BYC members are the best.
