    I have a problem......

    My neighbors on the left and right, with our pastures between us. Have chickens.
    I love having them in my pastures, eating bugs and spreading horse manue looking for more bugs.
    At night they all go home to roost, except one lonely hen. She has taken up living in the backyard and roosting on the porch swing. She is very friendly.
    My question is how do I get her to go roost in the barn? or maybe the old dog house?

    Hi Everyone!

    Thank-y'all for your feedback. The neighbors that "own" this hen........have sooooo many chickens I know they don't miss her.

    Tho I haven't seen her today.. [​IMG] maybe she went home...I hope a hawk didn't get her!

    Thank-you again!
