Well I placed the chickens in the coop and left them locked in the "house" for two days. I was told instead of just putting them in the coop, to lock them in the house so they would learn where home was. If you just let them loose they would stay in the run at night instead of going back to the house where they are more protected from the elements. So this was right after I removed the plywood over the door. They would stand in the doorway and look out, but were scared to try walking down the ramp. After a day they got the hang of it and everything seems to have worked out well. This photo was taken a few weeks ago and the chicks are a fair bit bigger now.
