I was having a real hard time getting my 2 in the coop last night. I think I may have started a little too late. Usually I call for them when the sun has just gone down past the trees and they come right up. Last night I had to go down to the pond to walk them up. Duckie, the chinese, would not leave the pond, I tried numerous time to get her to follow us (me and Saria) and she would not budge. I know she is still freaked about walking thru the "kill zone" and really doesn't want to do it without company. The "kill zone" is where her mate Magoo was killed by a predator last week. I finally had to pick her up and carry her. Saria followed me back and forth each time but by the time I finally got Duckie in the coop it was getting pretty dark. She would not move from the middle of the yard. She looked to be frightened, looking towards the woods. She would walk with me a few steps and then stop. I went to her with a lantern and that seemed to help a little bit. I was just wondering if they are like wild birds and have the instinct to roost somewhere safe at dusk because their sight is not good.
