The flock gets a new home!

These great people have worked so hard to get the new coop ready for our flock!

My awesome husband, and his dad working on the doors to the nesting boxes.

The twins working on the area for the older chicks, which is located under the nesting boxes.

the twins made this area for the older chicks who are still with mom, so we can put them where they can see the rest of the flock.

So far, it seems to be a success.  They are using the nesting boxes.  They seem to have all found their food and water, and are using all 3 of the roosts.

We will be keeping them inside for a full week before letting them out.  Our hope is that it will train them that this is their new home, so they come back into here at the end of the day!
