So I had 9 chickens that I have had for about 2 years. Previously, they free ranged my yard all day then at dusk headed back to the coop where they roosted for the night. Every single day like clockwork. Last month, we lost two chickens, we are not positive what happened , but have a feeling that the hawk that had been hanging around had something to do with it. Anyway, the 7 we have left refuse to go in the coop at night now. They go during the day and lay their eggs. They prefer to roost in the rhododendron bush right outside the house. If I have time, I will wait to feed them and then trick them into the coop. This is just so time consuming. Does anyone have any ideas on how I can convince them to go back to the coop at night and get back into that routine?
