We live an area that has bears. Just last week one actually broke open the coop door and snatched a couple of chickens and then came back for the next couple of nights scaring the daylights out of our hens. Now they refuse to enter the coop on their own at night and are just roosting in the trees. It's getting colder around here and I really want to them to go into the coop. We have reinforced the door and I have caught a couple with a big dip net but I still have 5 that are staying out at night. Any suggestions on how to catch them or should I just leave them out for the winter? We live in an area where the average winter temp is 32 degrees but can get colder with wind and snow storms. Any advice would be greatly appreciated because we sure like our girls and want them to be safe and happy! In case you were wondering our rooster disappeared one day about a month ago and I have gotten a new one but he is only 8 weeks old and not the leader I'm sure he will be when he grows up. Thanks in advance for your advice!
