Often when I let the birds out of their run in the evenings on their way to the coop, three of them leave and flutter away and one of them is then drawn to the part of the run closest to the retreating chickens but OPPOSITE from the door. It is some pretty difficult spatial problem solving This distresses the one left behind to no end! She will start crying louder and louder, and tonight the left-behind bird worked herself up enough to flap and fly into the screen mesh of the run. What a silly bird. Anyway, I'm wondering whether this level of fanaticism about staying with the flock is normal, and whether my 3-month olds will ever get used to hanging out alone. I am hoping to convert two of them into part-time house chickens eventually, so it would be great if they could be trained to settle down on their own!
