Brood coop escape

moving chicks from brooder to coop

How do we move the older chicks from their outdoor brooder to a new coop?

Anna hands me two, and then she scoops up two and we walk them over.

We didn't have an even number today, which meant someone had to stay behind alone for a few minutes. In the future we'll try to avoid that because the little guy kind of freaked out being alone and flew the coop. Luckily all we had to do was open the brood coop door and wait for him to scurry in.
