Chicken Update

Yesterday evening we moved the young chickens from their baby run in the barn to the adult chicken coop in the old play house. The adults pretty much ignore the younger chickens if they are all out in the yard but once they are cooped up together they pick on the little ones so we separated the coop with some chicken wire. This way the adults can come and go  through the front door while the little ones are safely contained inside. After a few days with this arrangement we hope that the adults will be used to the presence of the new flock and that the little ones will recognize the coop as home and will go back there are night once we start letting them free range.
