    I have 6 - 4 week old ducks. They come out of coop (OK?). Some walk, some jump and some just pray and hope. How do I get them back in coop. To date, I have to use capture and place methold or let them stay out all nite. The coop is 2 feet off of the ground with ramp 8" wide.

    Maybe make the ramp wider; just a bit wider then the opening to go into the coop.

    Or make steps for them. Use 2 x 10's (or 2 x 12's) and layer them on top of each other to allow them to step up and into the coop.
