    we built a new shed with a very large fenced in run for my new peas. they came from former homes with no runs,just cooped up all the time.problem, we put them all in 3 days ago and they will not go back in the shed! I put water in run for them. How do I teach them to hop up to the door? they are not tame at al to just pick one up and put it there .help:he

    If they never had runs they probably are enjoying their runs so much that they don't want to use the shed for a while. When we added a good shed to the pen the peas would rarely use it at all, but now all of a sudden the peacock is in there almost all the time and all the peafowl like to perch in there and preen ect. It just takes them a while to get used to new additions to the pen but hopefully they will use the shed soon. Put treats in there to maybe get them to go in there. They have roosts in the run too right? No mater what my peafowl would rather roost in the run than roost in the shed at night. They should get it eventually.

    Can you take a picture so we know what it looks like?
