So in a couple weeks our chickens are coming. Wolf has been busy building the coop — pictures when he’s done — and readying the yard for the four layers we’re getting. We decided not to get chicks because we live in too small a trailer to be able to house chicks and two cats.
This is my question: Will the chickens come back at the end of the day? By this I mean, I plan on free ranging them, allowing them to go where ever they want. But how do I round them up at the end of the day? Will they come back on their own?
Also, how do I keep them from running away when they first get here? Keep them in the coop for a month like I do with the cats so they know it’s home?
Lots of questions!
