I am new to this forum and to raising chickens so maybe I'm just too worried. I have had these chickens for two weeks. I have a coop that is in my barn that has an enclosed fenced part and then an inclosed coop. The coop was about 24" off the ground with a ramp and the chickens would not go up the ramp into the coop. So yesterday I redesigned the thing and lowered the enclosed coop(with a nesting box) to just a few inches off the ground with no ramp. I went out last night to lock the chickens in (they free range) and they were all sitting in the fenced in area and again there was not a chicken in the coop. Is this normal? What should I do to get them to go in the coop? I do have a light in it. I want them to learn to go inside so they will have a slightly warmer area for winter. Will they ever just walk into the enclosed coop?
