I moved my girls in the morning so I could watch them. The first 2 nights I had to catch them to put in the coop. After a week they are doing it all by themselves. Try adding some light after dusk to the inside of the coop. I used a small battery operated one.

Great article on VENTILATION, one of THE MOST IMPORTANT aspects of coop design.

Fantastic treatise to help decide how much SPACE your chickens need.

 

Chicken math is not just 'addition'...but also should include Division, Multiplication and especially Subtraction!!!
