As i have previously mentioned, i am new to chicken keeping, and i am still learning some of their behaviors, but i am perplexed. My chickens went from a brooder, to a make shift coop, then when i moved to a new house, i built them a beautiful coop. But they refuse to go into it at night. I've always heard "chickens always come home to roost". They spend more time in their coop than in the yard but at night, but when its time for bed, they insist on perching inside an old drip pan i am currently use for recycling. I have to pick them, one by one, and take then to their coop. What gives? Will they ever just go into their coop on their own or have they been tainted by this ugly black rubber bowl?
