    So we built a new coop for our ducks, they have been in my gardening shed and I wanted it back. Anyways, its been 3 days and they still sit outside the door of my gardening shed waiting to go in :( I have to chace them (takes about 10mins) to get them into the new coop. The coop is not as big at all as my gardening shed ( its a full shed) the new coop is a lot smaller and I don't allow food/water in the new one.

    Overtime will they eventually get the hang of the new coop??? How can I help them?

    If I change nighttime places I usually keep them locked up in it for a few days so they understand where home is.
