Or am I just lucky??? I had fully expected to have to train the chicks to go into the coop in the evening. Had been doing all sorts of reading. For the last three days I have been leaving my 5 week olds out in their run during the day. They happily run in and out of their coop. If we are out there with them they are romping around the run but I do think they get a little nervous if we're not outside with them. Then they end up in the coop - up on their perches! They seem to feel very safe in the coop. And last night I went out just after sun down to bring them back in to the brooder. They were already bedded down in the coop. Made it easy to catch them!!! Are they just brilliant or is it a sign that they are kind of anxious in their run. With all the prep I had been thinking about in terms of training them to go in the coop I feel like I must be missing something!
