    Hello- I have 5 babies about 8 weeks old and have had them since they were 3 days old. I put them outside in their coop about a week ago ( coop is elevated inside the run). I am still having to go out each evening to put them inside the coop, will they eventually start doing this on their own? They don't have a mama (except me and I can't fit in the coop!) to show them what to do.

    [​IMG] Keep your new babies in the coop....for a few days. Maybe 4 or 5. Then let them out right before dark. They will get the idea. Have fun with your little ones. They sure are addicting.[​IMG]
