    Well, after 2 wks + a stabbed hand in the beginning of construction, I finally got the chickies out of the basement and into their coop. Other than a few that got up the nerve to eat and drink, the rest are huddled in the middle and too scared to move. They will stay in for a few days then we will let them out in their pen and move the food and water out so they have more room in the coop. It's only 4X6 built in the back of the leanto behind the 6X8 one. Hope they like their new home...

    I just moved mine last weekend. It will take a day or two, but I am sure they will love it. Congrats.

    Yup, give them some time and they'll be loving their new digs.

    Is about 3 days long enough for them to be in before I start letting them out?
