    Hi I'm Bart I'm from Ferguson Mo. I got my hens two weeks ago. They are 12 weeks old. I have three buff orientation and three bar Plymouth Rock. I have there coop made but still working own the run. I fell really bad for the girls because the have to be coop up in there coop for a cupple more weeks before I get the run is finished. This looks like a happening Place. I'm looking forward in meeting and talking with you all.

    When bringing them to a new coop it's good for them to stay in a while, with no outside access. It's called coop training, they establish the coop as home. As long as they've got adequate space I wouldn't fret. How big is your coop?
