I have 6 week olds that have been out in the coop for a week, I let them in the run after a few days. I have closed the door to the coop prior to sunset most nights ( with chicks inside ) because we were leaving or I was unsure if they would put themselves to bed when dark set in. Last night I had to leave prior to dark and didnt want to put them in the coop as they were enjoying the run, when I came home it was dark and they were all snug in the coop. My question is would you say once they know to go in at dark they will pretty much do it from now on? I am hoping this is true, run is secure and I would like to not worry about being home right at sunset every evening. Also when do they typically start sleeping on the roost? right now they huddle together in the corner on the floor. They use the roosts all through the day they just dont sleep there at night.
