    every night after my other chickens go into their coop to sleep one of my chickens (pez) stays out and roosts in a tree or undreneath the deck. its impossible to get her out from the deck and its hard to get her out of the tree.
    any suggestions on how to make her go back to sleeping in the coop?

    Does she like treats, can you coax her in with them? I give our chickens pieces of grapes as treats (they loooove them) and if they think I've got grapes, they'll follow me anywhere.

    Just a thought.

    ok ill try that but a bigger problem is she dosent really like people which is typical of her breed and she dosent like fallowing or approaching someone unless one of the other chickens does it first.
