Hi there Yard Bird enthusiasts! We are somewhat new to chickens raising, I had chickens as a kid but don't remember too much. Our new flock wont really come out of the coop. We just got 5 20 week old Leg Horns and put them in the coop. They spent the first few days inside and would only come out when my wife ran them out. Thinking that they need some mentoring I got two 1-year-old hens yesterday, a Barred Plymouth Rock and a Buff Orphington, both from a guy who had a 13 chicken flock of free-rangers. We have a large coop (about 8 X 8 X 8foot tall) and a run that is 16' X16". I have the food and water inside the coop. My son opens their door at 6am-ish when he gets up and we close it just before dark. I am wondering if they are still getting used to things or if I need to move the food and water into their yard. My intention (hope) is to open the gate to their yard and let them range our yard during the day but don't want to do that until they are coming out freely. Also, 5 days with the Leggs, 2 with the newbies and no eggs yet What are your thoughts?
