Hi all! I'm Klyra! I've been reading here for weeks and finally decided to register. I have three Leghorn hens in the backyard. They were hatched in June 2014 so at the time of writing they're about 9 weeks old. We have an enclosed backyard and a coop that they live in. Lately they have been trying to roost in the trees instead of their coop which means trying to search for them in the dark and carrying them back to the coop. A friend suggested grounding them in the coop for 4-5 days and getting a light in there for them, which I will do and hopefully they will relax and think of the coop as home again! Another thing I'm seeing is that they are hanging out in the nesting boxes. I read somewhere that I should dissuade them from doing this until they're laying, but I don't know how to do that. Any ideas? Or any additional ideas on coop training them that I haven't already listed? Thanks for the wealth of information you guys have already posted. I've enjoyed learning from everything I've read here!!
