    So they have been able to go outside now for a week and they still perfer to stay inside. Do I have weird chickens or what? they are almost 12 weeks old now and i put left over food out in the run, but they still won't go out for a long time, they will go out for a minute and then run back in! Weird things!

    How is the weather? They will eventually then you will have to round them up in the evenings to get them inside. As they get older then they will go in on their own at dusk. They go through phases.
