    Hi. I am a retired Technology director who is married to a retired Agriculture science teacher. We just ventured into the world of backyard chickens last week. We built our chicken palace and purchased 12 pullets on Monday. This is a new adventure for me but I have loved the first weeks. Except my 4 Buffs won't go into the coop at night--lol

    Try putting them in by hand after dark, after a few times they will go on their own.

    Thanks. We have put them in 2 nights now. Hoping tonight is the night they go in on their own.

    Hi again, I also responded to your other post. You said they went in the first couple of days and then stopped. I suggested the other breeds are harassing them on the roost etc.

    G’Day from down under rustybry [​IMG] Welcome!

    I didn’t respond on your other post cos I haven’t seen it yet [​IMG] lol

    I hope you enjoy being a BYC member. There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun.

    If you would like to share pictures and stories of your flock, you have come to the right place. BYC’ers never tire of these and do not back away slowly or commence eye rolling when the photo album or home videos come out [​IMG]
