Just curious - we have a flock of 12, and we just had to go out in the storm and rescue some. There is one Ameraucana who refuses to go into the coop. We found her hiding, and also the rooster hiding between the planters and three RIR hiding under a leaning board. I think the rooster was out watching over them, as he's normally in the coop. Do you think these 4 will finally come to their senses soon? What do you do when you have birds that are just too stupid to help themselves? It's getting frustrating trying to round them up every evening. Tonight is 40+ mph winds and torrential rain. We were both soaked to the bone after we finally got them in. Any advice??? Leaving them out is not an option, as we have cougar and bobcats that hang around The cougar has been coming through fairly regularly, and we would prefer not to feed him.
