They are literally 10 feet away from the coop but they will wait for me to walk them over to it. The sun was goin down and they laid down in the yard. They start to "whine" and they all come to me for direction. I get up and just call them to the coop and up they go. Its the craziest thing ever because they go up and down throughout the day but will not go in for the night until I tell them to.
