I brought my two ladies home today! I have kept them inside their run, and put them to bed inside the attached coop this evening. The 4 year old is a buff orpington and the 1 year old is a cochin/polish mix. They came from a huge farm, and I just hate to keep them caged up. They look so confused! But, I know it's necessary for a while, so they become accustomed to their new home. When is the soonest I can let them out to explore the yard?? We have 6 foot tall wooden stockade fencing on 2 sides of the backyard. On the other 2 sides, we have chainlink fencing about 4 feet tall. I know the orpington couldn't fly over, and I'm pretty sure the cochin/polish couldn't either. They are both quite tame. What do you think??
