Okay, my seven week old girls just moved out to their coop/run. Today was the first day that I let them out into the run. It took them about 30 min to decide they would fly out of the coop and down into the run. The bravest girl was the first out and the others followed not long after. However, and the end of the day, they did not know that they needed to go back in. This means that I got to chase them down and put them in the coop one by one. I tried to at least put them on the top rung of the ladder and make them jump up into the coop door. How do you train them to A) use the ladder, and B) go into the coop in the evening. Some other info: The coop is two feet off the ground and the ladder is at a 30-45 degree angle. The rungs are about 4 inches apart (the ladder is a wide board with the square rungs attached to it). Edited to add: Okay, they are *STILL* not going in at night, and I know they can go up the ladder. I have watched several of them go up the ladder and get the treats that I leave on the rungs (to get them to use the ladder). Tonight I left them out until it was dark. I went outside, and they are all roosting on the end of the coop (where we have a platform to hang the water and what not off of). Help! They are eight weeks old and have been out in the coop for about a week. They were kept in the coop for several days before they went into the run. I *really* need them to go in the coop at night without me having to help them. I thought this was instinct?
