Hi all, Our 8 week pullets have been in their combo coop/run for a week now and they are still not using the ramp to go up to the coop at night. My husband has to carry them up from under the coop where they are huddled together every evening. We have tried putting food on the ramp, etc but they don't seem to get it. Any ideas? The ramp is a 45 degree angle or less, and has rungs/ steps every 6 inches. They don't seem to have any problems flying down. The coop door is about 2 feet off the ground. Last night was dangerous because there were raccoons that came in the yard while my husband was trying to transfer the chickens up. They do stay in the coop after he takes them up, but they sleep in one of the nesting boxes instead of the roosting bar, which is 20" off the coop floor. It's made out of a wooden closet rung. I thought the chickens would naturally know what to do, but do my chicks have a learning disability?
