In my little three-hen flock, I have a Polish bantam who has suddenly taken to roosting outdoors at twilight. The other two girls head to the coop and settle in--but I find Jazzy sleeping out in the yard on top of a cage or on the fence. (Which can't be comfy-both are thin wire to stand on.) I scoop her up and she doesn't object to when I put her on the roost in the coop with the others. Which is fine for now, but with winter coming, soon I won't be able to get home before dark to lock everyone up. I'm planning to get an automatic coop door. But if Jazzy doesn't head into the coop at bedtime, I'm really concerned she'll just end up locked out. Is there anything I can do to get her back in the habit of going into the coop on her own? This behavior started a week ago, which is about the time I came home to find a raccoon in the run with the chickens, eating out of the feeder at 4:30 in the afternoon. (The poor girls were frantically trying to squeeze themselves through a 2-inch gap in the gate to get away from it.) So maybe home doesn't feel as safe as it used to? Since then, I reinforced the run really well, and am pretty confident it is raccoon-proof now. Until last week Jazzy usually headed to the coop nearly an hour before the others. Now it's almost like she's trying to roost in the farthest spot from the coop she can find. Suggestions, anyone?
