    I let them out today for the first time. At first they would not leave from under the coop, then they wandered under my truck about ten feet away for a whlile. I had a ramp set up and they went in and out a few times. Whe it started getrting dark, ten out of eleven went in. The last one would not go in for anything. She was impossible to catch. You folke ever have this happen? It was dang near dark when she finally went in. I was going to leave her out all night. I removed to ramp and and was closing up for the night when she jumped in the door.

    I think people usually deal with this by closing them in the coop for a few days so they learn where home is, or putting a light in the coop to attract them in at dark.
