    Just got a new white leghorn the other day.
    She gets along good with my other birds but when
    it gets dark and the others go in she will get on the perch outside and just stay there all night. Is this normal?

    Well, you said you just got her "the other day"...so she is still "new" to the flock. Maybe she doesnt KNOW she is supposed to go in? Try putting her inside one evening, and closeing the door.. Keep them all in there till morning. She will get the idea.
