Wow you guys are awesome!! I would have never figured it out. I should probably add that I am new to chickens (if you couldn't already tell) and just got the girls yesterday. A lady I know just had to many and gave me these. She said they are about 9 months old, and are supposed to be laying. Only have had them for 2 days and no eggs yet. I kind of figured it would take them a few days to adjust to the new digs.
How long should I keep them in the coup before letting them out and about (free range) that is what my Mom always did with her chickens. I defiantly have the space here on 10 acres with no neighbors.
