    Beautiful Lake County
    Any advice...
    I just got home from getting a few (4) more chickens to add to my flock.
    Well the black cochin jumped off the deck and somehow over the next hour they are all down near the flock of 6 leghorn pullets.
    Chicken tag was fun but didn't work.

    Any advice?

    Right now I am hoping that they follow the older ones into the coop tonight so I can catch them.

    You could try herding them with a long stick or branch. Treats always work for my little, chickens I mean [​IMG] Good luck!

    So much for Bio security![​IMG] When I had my little 'found' hen, I had her in a pen approx. 250 ft from the girls.. Let the older girls out and guess where they were found?? Eating from under her pen!! It happens.. Nothing I could do about it. I would sit and watch where they go to roost...pick them off and put them where I wanted them.. GOOD luck..
