    I just got some Silkies and they are just adorable I love them. I got them Sunday morning and they finally went out of the coop in the yard this evening. When it started getting dark they just started piling up in the yard and didn't go back in the coop? I am sure they would have died out in the weather cold and rainy. I had to put them in and block the door so I didn't have to worry about them coming back out. My little banty hen tried to get them to go in and finally gave up and went to bed. I hope in a few days they learn to go in at night I might not always be hear to put them in. Has anyone had this problem?
