I had built a coop in anticipation of their arrival, but the day we got them, they hopped onto our fence and flew into our neighbors' trees.
2 hang out in one tree on the street behind us and 2 hang out in our next door neighbor's tree. We've been checking on them every day and we try to coax them back with food. But since they are not familiar with us or the new neighborhood, they just flee whenever anyone tries to approach. We can't even get close to them. When they go up into the trees, they are way out of reach.
I tired setting up one of those traps for cats and raccoons but that hasn't worked at all.
We don't know what to do and I'm worried that our neighbors see them as a nuisance because we don't live in a rural area. And the chickens have been digging in their yards.
We feel like we are terrible at this. Does anyone have any advice for us? Thanks in advance.
