    Just wanted to share that all seven of my pullets are in the coop and on the roosts tonight! It's their second night with us, and last night two of them wouldn't let the others up into the coop. The others ended up roosting on the ladder that leads up to the coop. Tonight we "assisted" the two dominant ones to move away from the door, and then the others up the ladder. Once they were all in the coop and settled on the roosts, we blocked the door. It's so nice to know they're all safe and cozy in the coop for the night. My first success with my chickens! LOL!
