4 out of 5 Chickens wouldn't go in their House Tonight


Hello. I am a Chicken Newbie. I bought 2 Buckeyes, 2 Delawares and 2 Plymouths.
I've had them for 3 weeks. No problems with them going in at dark. Usually they would be in before dark. I've been letting them out around 630 in the morning. This morning i went out 630 and 1 of the buckeyes was dead laying beside. the door. I had to remove her before the others would go out.
Tonight I went out to check on them before dark and 4 of them roosted in front of the door and wouldn't go in. I finally got them poked in with a broom handle.Any suggestions on getting them back in their routine?
My chicken guy thinks worms. I started the ACV water today.
Did he open up the bird(necrospy) to see if it was infested with worms?
ACV won't rid your birds of worms...if in fact that is why one of them died.

How old are the birds...and where did you get them?
Knowing more about your flock and their housing might help here.
Dimensions and pics of coop and run always helps.

Oh, and....Welcome to BYC @DougDove sorry you're having troubles.
Where in this world are you located?
Climate, and time of year, is almost always a factor.
Please add your general geographical location to your profile.
It's easy to do, (laptop version shown), then it's always there!
