Hi, I have nine 10 week old chicks. They live in a coop with run but I bring them down to a fenced yard in the afternoon. I take them by holding them or putting them in a cat crate. It is easy when I take them out but it is challenging to catch them and bring them back to the coop. At the moment, my daughter and I corner them, catch them and bring them back. We have just started making a fenced garden around the coop, so they are going to be able to just walk out of the door and go into the garden in the future, but until it gets done, we will have to take them down to the garden. What is the best way to let them in and out without having to catching them while they run away? Thinking of making a small-size mobile tractor and teach them to get in it when it is time to go or go back. But would like to have suggestions. Thanks!
