Moving the chicks

chicks July 15

Last night we moved the chicks from the brooder box in our house to the chick house on the allotment. This morning I opened the chick house to let them out into the enclosed run. They stayed put for a couple more hours before venturing out. They haven't yet worked out that they roost in the chick house, not on the run! I found all 6 huddled in the corner of the run tonight. I had to pick each one up and pop them into the chick house. Give them a few days and they will know to do that of their own accord.
