Hey All, so sorry to bombard you all with questions - we inherited our chix from the former owners of this house and it was a love connection. I am obsessed and in love with my four hens. The coop they had was too small, the roost and the nest boxes were at same height, it was weathered..so they were sleeping on the roof of it (under a run) (run contained the coop) and pooping all over the roof, it was a nightmare. So....we built a new penthouse suite for them and they are really starting to like it. Laying eggs in the new boxes instead of the old one etc. This coop is on the outside of the run and connected to it. My question is, since they are still sleeping on top of the old one, and I can easily place them in the new one til they get used to sleeping there, but how long should I wait before demolishing and removing their old coop? I don't want to stress them out or upset them. Any advice on how soon to take it down? Thanks all for your patience with this newbie!
