    I just picked up the pullets I bought. Incredilbly they seem to have already settled in. They found the feed container, water and layed down to take a nap. But the younguns are digging. I was concerned about predators digging their way in, but these chickens look like they're try dig their way out. [​IMG] Is this what they do? Do they meet the fox halfway. And they're digging right at the fence.

    I put a sand box in the coop for them so they can take their dust baths. Doing this pretty much stopped them from digging holes since they are satisfied with the sand box.
