We have been thinking of getting chickens for a long while and have done random research. And then, of course, a deal comes up we can't walk away from. We adopt two 2-yr old Silver Lace Wyandottes and their coop. We built a run (their old one wasn't the least secure) and move them on Sunday, just 3 days ago. They seem happy and healthy. One laid an egg while in the wire kennel Sunday afternoon while we were putting the finishing touches securing coop and run together! Their feathers are glossy and they follow us around the perimeter of the run clucking away. Awesome... So here's our issue: Every night they put themselves to bed (so says their previous owner) but at our house they just perch in the doorway. They never go inside to roost. They just seem to sit there all night. It hasn't been THAT cold lately but should I be worried? Should I make a door to the coop and lock them in? We tried setting one on the roost last night but she just hopped right down and went back to the doorway. Do they need time to adjust even though their coop is exactly the same? The run and outside environment are totally different. In fact, the are probably getting more sunshine at our house. Any reassurance is appreciated! Love this site and thanks!
