My name is Kandice i have my very first flock. I have one of my original girls ive had since feb when she was tiny. The others turned out to be males and i couldnt keep them so i gave them to a man with a huge flock and got 2 of his girls. In total we have 3 so a small flock lol. They are not laying right now i was told it got to hot in the summer but it has cooled off now and still not laying. Maybe they will start in the spring. I am attempting the deep litter method and doing good with that so far. The only problem i have right now is they wont go in the coop at night unless i shoo them in. I dont want them to freeze to death or get eaten cause they attract the cayotes cause they are out. (they are sleeping in a covered run they are not free range) How can i train them to go inside at night? Thank you.
