just got my first 4 chicks, Japanese phoenix. have them in their new coop, closed in with food, water and a small tub of fine dirt. Was told to keep them there for 4 or 5 days so they get to know thats their new home. They are already perching on the highest of 3 2x4s. Havent noticed any food being eaten, it is the same food that they had at their previous home. Set up a 6 foot tall chain link fence for them covering around 2300 sq ft of back yard. is there anything someone may suggest that i have missed? also, the coop is built 1 foot off the ground. will there be an issue of snakes getting into the coop when it gets warmer? thanks for all the informative posts that i have been reading up on, lot of knowledge on this site! also got my bunnies!
