I haven't seen this problem before so I thought I would ask! I have 11 beautiful true Ameraucanas that are about 9weeks old.. They lived in their coop (that is 4' off the ground) for almost 6 weeks.. Finally, we got the run finished and each day I let them out...It's been a week and they still will NOT go in their at night by themselves! They will circle the coop, looking up and then they huddle in the corner of the run and wait on momma to come and put them to bed! I have a 'ladder' up to the coop w/ cleats for them to walk on.. They CAN and DO get into the coop during the day.. I have seen them up their cking out the feeder...even tho they have food and water on the ground level! So, should I cut the legs off their coop to lower it.?. I wanted it high enough predators could reach the bottom /sides easily..so far so good..
