OK, yesterday, I let the chickens into the run, then closed the pop door and cleaned out the inside of the coop REALLY good. Some scraping and other sounds as I cleaned. Sure. Put the barn-yard pellets in (same brand), the food and water exactly as they were - and then opened the door. They wouldn't go in! So hours later, is't dusk ...and they wouldn't go in. I put one in and before I get the other, the first is back out. I get them both in and close the door (as they were trying to get back out) and inside, they're making a ruckus. Within a minute, they're on their perches but aren't happy about it. This morning, I took an extra hour to open their pop door to let them into the run. They hadn't gotten off their perches at all. Then they do to quickly escape into the run. They won't go inside ...or won't stay for long ..not even long enough to eat. The food is inside the coop ..so in order to eat, they gotta go inside. I hope they get over their lapse of reason before they starve.
