Hello everyone! My chicks are to arrive the last week of this month. I'm anxious and a little nervous! However, I have a question for you all. I work evening shift and come home late at night. I generally leave my house around 2pm. I'm just curious, how will that work for the chickens? My plan is to let them roam freely on our property (nearly 2 acres waaay out in the country), but I don't want to leave them out exposed to predators by not locking them up in their coop. Will chickens learn to go into their coop before I leave for work? Or will I have to leave them "cooped up" most of the week and let them out on the days I'm off and on the weekends? Our coop will have a chicken run. Any advice or suggestions will be greatly appreciated!
