    Haha you must have thought I was a ding-bat. I figured they need food and water LOL just wasn't sure the best way to provide those without the water being knocked over and the food getting all over the coop, but I will figure it out! Thanks so much!

    Wow okay - if after like 5 days of trying what we did last night (luring them in before dark and shutting the door early enough for them to perch themselves, as opposed to picking them up after dark and placing the on perches inside) doesn't work, I will try this! Do you just stick a bowl of...

    Thanks! You were close...there was a smaller brown coop inside the run that they were perching on so we finally removed the old coop. Now they like to go in and out of the new coop and even lay eggs in there but not sleep. I have been putting them inside the coop after they fall asleep and I...

    Oh my gosh you guys must be so sick of me...but okay so....when we first moved here, the house came with four pullets (born March) and a tiny inadequate coop inside a run. They were sleeping on top of the coop in the run. We were picking them up and placing them inside every night all while...
