Todd finished the chicken coop in the dark over the weekend. Our neighbors are pretty used to the sound of his saw and hammer after dark.
The chicks have been living in an alien spaceship-looking cardboard brooder box in our basement for the past four weeks. I highly recommend making something like this out of your old moving boxes and duct tape. We lined it with pine shavings and only had to clean it once (only having 6 chicks probably made that possible).
Our 8 year-old daughter, Kayla, wrangled, or as she called it,"strangled", each chicken one-by-one and moved them into the coop.
