    Hello,

    I have a hen(Katch) that doesn't go into the coop with the rest of my flock. Every night I go to close the coop door and Katch is ALWAYS on top of the coop and I have to pick her up and put her inside and close the door. I tried later bed times, moved the coop...still on top every night.

    Any suggestions ?

    Thanks!![​IMG]

    Maybe if you grab her a little earlier, before the others go in, and put her inside she'll catch on. Never really had that problem but good luck.

    Mind posting pictures of your set up so we can further analyze?
