This round of baby chicks (now teenagers) are just a tad bit different from the last batch. For starters… there’s more of them. And although they seem to get along just fine with the big chickens… they do have their quirks. Like needing to be tucked into bed each night.
For the last two weeks (since I took away their small Eglu (chicken house) each night they have been flying to the top of the Chicken Mc Mansion and waiting patiently for The Girl Who Thinks She’s A Bird to pick them up one by one and put them inside the cage…
As soon as they’re within the confines of the Chicken Mc Mansion they’ll hop up the orange plastic ladder and head to bed… But the strange thing is… they wait for her to put them in the cage.
So now what? How do we get the chickens to go into the Chicken Mc Mansion by themselves at night? How to we get them to behave like normal chickens? We need our beauty sleep! If you have any suggestions… please leave us a comment… we’d appreciate it.
