I just finished building my coop and my friend has a farm with chickens that he said I could pick from. I want 7 birds, but I"m not sure how I will start them off once I get home. They are free ranging now and will free range at my house as well. My question is: What's the best way to transition my girls into their new home. I do not have chickens currently so these will be the only ones in the coop. I searched the boards for a similar post, but had no luck finding anything. Most of the posts were about introducing new chickens into your flock. Thanks! Here is my new coop. I converted my kids playhouse!
