Hey peeps (pun intended), We have 4 one-year-old hens, one pain the butt rooster, and 6 new three week old babies! I'm posting pics of our newly assembled coop as well as the old. Our goal would be to get them all in together now that we have the room. (Holds up to 14 in the new one). Should we get the existing flock situated first, then in three weeks add the others? Or....wait until the new ones are ready and add them all in together with the chicks in a smaller cage inside for a while beforehand to get acquainted? ( Will do this step either way). Another question we have is do we really have to lock them in for a few days so they know the new coop is "home:. Or....can we just put food in, and every night lure them in until it becomes routine? They free range in the backyard during the day.
