They are in their coop until about noon, when I go out and let them out into my park like acre yard that has a creek with a couple of bridges and is very wooded, lots of things for them to discover and EAT, but I have to coax them out and then they never travel farther than 10 feet from the coop and half the time they are in a walkway IN THE COOP that is barely big enough for me to turn around in.....lol. I go out when I get home from work to do the chores (whatever they maybe that day) in the coop and they are all over me trying to get in the door wanting to go in for the [email protected] 5:30 @ night....crazy chickens! They just simply prefer to hang in the coop I guess? But I don't get it - they have food and water in both locations. And they come out of the coop when I am out there by the coop working on something outside. But if I'm not there they are either right behind the coop or in the walkway inside the door...... Any Ideas why??
