coop vs run

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

 I just put my birds in their new home. The problem is they will not move from the coop area to the run area or vice versa by themselves They have ramp to and from the coop but they will not clime up the ramp. Any tricks or ideas will help me. They are 1 and 1/2 months old.

 

 

Thanks

In my experience, it just takes a couple of times guiding them in and shooing them out and they just "get it"

I have a small ramp around 2-2.5 feet long and maybe 8-10 inches off the ground at the coop to go in the coops for the younger birds. I have had some figure it out in 2 nights and some take 3 weeks. Its kinda a luck thing I Guess. My Lavenders always figure it out really quick as my Buffs take 2 weeks sometimes.
