I have read in the forum that this topic has been discussed. I am trying to find a way to keep my chickens in the coop at night. I live in western NY near the finger lakes. It is cold and snowy, I am less concerned about the temps than I am about preditors. I have lost 2 hens to hawks and neighborhood cats pester the hens at night in the tree. The tree is next to the coop. Any ideas how to get them to go in at night? They go in during the day to lay, eat and drink.
