Hi all, I have read a few similar threads on this topic but hoping to find some new advice. Just got 3 chicks for the first time. They are about 5 weeks old. They were still in a brooder at the place we got them, but with the warm weather they told us it would be OK for them to go straight to a regular coop. (It is plenty warm enough even at night since they are mostly feathered.) We have a small coop/run kit (intending on letting them free range once they get their bearings.) They are afraid to go up the ramp and in the coop! On day 1, we took them home and put them in the coop first. They huddled by the open door to the run terrified, and eventually jumped down into the run area. The ramp is also scary so they skipped the ramp and just jumped off the side. By bedtime they had zero interest in going to the coop to sleep. We just picked them up and put them in and they just kept jumping out the door to the run again. We closed the coop door forcing them in for the night and they peep-screamed for 20 minutes before finally going to sleep. Night 2 - similar... tried to lure them up the ramp with treats this time - no luck. Tried putting a light inside the coop and waiting for it to get darker, thinking they might follow the light. No luck. Ended up basically picking them up and putting them in the coop and closing the door. Again peep-crying for about 15 minutes. Night 3 - modified ramp to have more bars giving it more traction. Tried luring them up with yummy yummy tomato that they are going crazy over. They refuse to go more than halfway up the ramp. Tried a light in the coop again... No luck. Gave up and picked them up and put them in the coop, closed the door... more peep-crying until they fell asleep. They are also scratching at the door wanting out. But the duration of time until they fell alseep was less. Ideas to help the coop be less scary?? I have heard of locking them in all day and night so they get that this is "home" but with the weather being 90+ that just doesn't seem right.
