What time of the day is a good time to move the chickens from the garage to their coop. We just finished the pen so I need to put down the bedding etc. Is it better to do this in the morning or the evening.Only have 2 hens and 1 rooster.

Just put the three in the coop. The rooster isn't crowing yet. They have food and water.

I introduce my chickens to their new surroundings during the day. That gives them a chance to check it out, learn where food and water is, and generally become comfortable with their new digs before going to roost. I've not had any problems doing it that way.
