Our chickens are about 5 months old now. We have 13 hens and 1 Rooster. They have been outside for a while now and doing great. Our issue is that not all the chickens want to be in the coop at night and they started using the trees. Now others are following them to the trees. I really want them to use the coop at night and to use the nest box for eggs. Someone told me to clip their wings but I really don't want to do that. While I also don't want them in the trees, I want the to have all the advantages of flight in case of a predator. Our goal was to have them free range most of the time and in the coop at night. Suggestions on how to teach them to go in.?. A couple have started laying eggs and I really want them in the coop in the nest boxes.
