Has anyone ever had their chickens escape the coop? Well, here is where you can post about it! Mine escaped yesterday, in the middle of winter. I haven't been letting them free range in winter because they will sit in the snow until we come and take them in. We don't want frozen chicken! Anyways, we were relaxing when we heard a guinea that didn't sound like she was in the coop. We went to the window, and saw it g around outside. We chased her to the coop. They had managed to open the door in the coop! The guinea went in, but four hens were still out! I caught the three white leghorns easily. The other was Betsy, who does not like to be touched. After chasing her through trees and using a bucket of scratch grains to lure her, I finally got her in. They must have perched on the handle to push it down, and when they jumped off, they pushed the door. It's the only thing I could come up with. Please post your escape stories! I would love to hear them!
