My brother-in-law has 6 red star hens that will not go in the coup at night, instead they will roost in the run. He now goes out every night and puts them first in the coup then goes around and puts them on the roast and locks them in at night. They were around eight weeks old in april when he brought them home and the have never went in and roosted on there own. they will go in and out all day and lay in the boxes but not at night. My wife and I think they like to be carried to bed everynight. When I got my red stars 2 years ago, i just through them in the coup the first night and they do it on their own now every night at dusk. Any Suggestions?
