The words of advice we were given by experienced chicken owners:’Bring the new birds into the coop at night, when they are roosting, when they awaken it will be like they were always there.’ We did this with our hens and it worked great.
Fill your child with self-esteem. Children need their buckets filled each day by their parents and other adults and family members. The remainder of the day people will be taking things out of the bucket. Make sure your child's bucket never gets empty.
