That is IT!! The Buff Orpington is NEVER coming out of the tractor ever again!!! I will also never, EVER make the mistake of leaving the ladder down when cleaning the coop that's upstairs. Lesson learned there She's been the one to always not want to follow the flock and wants to go off on her own. Today was a nightmare because while she was an easy catch the last few times that we've free ranged, she's been the last one in the door and now she's decided she doesn't want to go back in at all unless it suits her. It was bad enough yesterday getting her back in but now, she's a total nutcase when it comes to anyone getting near her. No one's scared her by grabbing at her, etc. You get within 3 feet of her and she freaks out, running, squawking, etc.. No amount of treats helped, and neither did herding, so she's into the tractor indefinately until she learns a sense of calm and learns to stay with the flock. I'm beynd frustrated with her right now and she's lucky she didn't end up in the cook pot tonight as mad as I was earlier during all of this. Anyone else have a rogue chicken that doesn't like to be a part of the flock??
