    I finially had someone cut the opening for the outside the other day and today I let them out on their own for the first time....and 2 mintues later they went back in. They dont seem to want to come out, how long did it take yours to explore outside?

    My chickens started exploring the run after about 5 minutes. I have a lot of curious chickens. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Mine wouldn't explore individually but did so as a big group. DBF and I swear they share a brain.

    Bribe them with treats to come out.

    Mine slowly explored the outside pen and after about 30 minutes were running in and out. They explored as a group too.
