    Do you feed them at all? I can usually lure mine into a coop with some seed or meal worms, but they are used to following me around to get food. [​IMG] From there I can either get my hands on them if I'm fast or I can use a soft net.

    If they free range they should know your voice when you go out.
    Do not feed them outside the coop. Toss favorite treat in coop and shut the door. Wait till they roost and it is dark to catch them, do not catch them by the feet.
