So I have 5 backyard chickens. They are 6 months old. I let them out of the coop in the morning and they roam my backyard all day and head back into there coop at dusk... or that's what they used to do at least. For the past few of weeks they've been waiting longer and longer to head back to the coop. And now, for whatever reason, they wait till it's completely dark. The problem is that it's so dark not all of them can find their way back into the coop (my yard's not that big), and I've come home at 11pm or so and find them on top of the coop roof, on the nesting box, on the fence beside the coop, etc. We have some large owls in the neighborhood and I'm worried because they aren't protected when they aren't in the coop. I think something tried to get one a few nights ago because I found a bunch of feather on the ground beside the fence (they place a couple of them go instead of the coop). Is this just normal? Any advice will be greatly appreciated! Here's a pic of them tonight. Staying by my security light instead of just going to the coop!!
