[Market-farming] New Chicks

Very quickly, especially the pullets. The cocks tend to stubbornly line up
along the outside of the tractor. After the cocks are all killed off, the
pullets not only are very adventurous but also much better behaved, and will
go in on their own. Sorry for the sexist tone, but that is what I have
observed, without looking hard.

I've got my chicks out now in a tractor, after four weeks in the house --
what a mess -- why didn't somebody warn me?


Anyway, when will the chicks figure out on their own that it's time to go
night-night and return to the shelter of the coop without me having to chase
them down?
