So we built a new run and added it on to the old coop. All we had left were 2 roosters from the old flock. They had been alone for quite some time so we didn't want to just throw them all together so we locked the girls into the run and would let the boys out the front side of the coop. We left it that way for a month. Then let everyone play together. All is well on that front... BUT . . . the girls wont coop up now. They think they are supposed to roost in the run. They return to the run after free-ranging... but they won't enter the coop. How do I get them to change this train of thought? I have 2 roosts for them in the run. Hubs said take them out. I think that's a good idea - for a start. I just don't think that will make them say "Hey, the coop has roosts! Let's go!" Or will it? I left the door open to the coop so it would be nice and light in there while they were coming in at dusk. I attached a little light to help it be light enough to see in case they wanted to come in from the run. But no takers. Funny thing is, they will go in there during the day - I suppose because it is hot. Anyone with a Chicken Psych 101 degree? What's a mom to do??? Thanks!
