The fencing did the trick. Most of the new pullets and hens just hung out inside the coop for a day or so, slowly venturing out as they became comfortable with thier new surroundings. The coop is now home, and the nesting boxes are where to lay.
The Pyrennees pups that we're training had a much harder time with fence. In & out, in & out - just bowling right through the netting. It worries me, I just got a good pair of working dogs!
Who can resist the lovely Mrs. Feta?
