I am new to BYC an have been searching for anyone else that has had this similar problem. I have 3 Ameraucana's out of my 20 birds. 1 of them insist on staying outside. Friday night, I closed up the coop and did the normal walk around the area looking for anything they had dug up (just purchase the home last year and have found some pretty strange items in the yard so far). Saturday morning, I look out my window and 1 of them was outside pacing back and forth. Instantly I put my coat and shoes on and went outside thinking something got into the coop. I got out there and everything was closed up. She must have hid under the ramp. So Saturday night, I look under there and sure enough she's there, and again last night. Why won't she go in? I have had chicken's for years and even growing up and never had this problem. Any advice would be helpful.
