I have one cayuga and two swedish ducks that have been raised together since we got them in April. When they were large enough, we added them to our existing chicken flock of 3 birds. Every night my little bantam hen waits just inside the doorway to the left of the ramp. I can't figure out if it's her they don't want to upset or if it is the ramp that's too uncomfortable for them. It's about 18 inches long by 7 inches wide. Do you think they just can't waddle up it, or do you think they just don't want to be bossed around? Once my hubby catches them and stuffs them in the doorway, they're fine being inside the coop and in the morning they come out just fine too. I am playing with the idea of getting them a little dog house next to the coop so we don't have to chase them every night. Other than that, does anyone have any advice on training them to go in the coop by themselves? Thanks!
