    My girls have been in their new coop/run for the past 2 days. Once they figured out the ramp I cant keep them out of the coop.. I thought they would LOVE the outside grassy run and beautiful sunshine, but everytime I look out o check on them they are all or almost all are back up in the coop! I was thinking of blocking off the door during the day just so they would stay out in the run. Is it normal to love the coop this

    Just give them time. It is very scary to be in all that strange new territory all at once.
