Pretty much all summer long, none of my chickens would go in the coop to sleep at night. I tried locking them up at night but somehow someone has busted the coop door lose and they end up back outside on my husbands work bench. I have stopped feeding them (for the most part) anywhere other than in the coop. My flock free ranges our 1 acre yard. I do have a run but it isn't covered and if I attempt to put them in the run they just fly over it and leave to spend the night on the work bench yet again. Within the last couple of days, one of my hens has been sleeping on the railing of the front porch...all alone. Why on earth would she want to sleep on the front porch when all of the rest of the flock is sleeping out back on the work bench? During the day she free ranges with the rest of the flock. I don't know why she is singled out to sleep alone. With cooler weather on the way, I'm starting to get a little worried about my girls, and guys. I don't see them sleeping out in the cold on a metal work bench something that sounds fun at all. How can I get them in the coop at night? I mean, when it rains, they happily sit on that metal work bench getting wet. I need to fix the coop door for one thing. Would it help if I left the light on in the coop? I hate to do it but I've thought about cutting wings and locking them up in the run for a while so they can't get over the run and sit on the work bench. I hate the idea of doing that to them. But if I did that and left the coop light on, would it help? What causes this behavior? We did have a couple of floods this year and the coop floor flooded out. Would that keep them from wanting to go in there? Thanks for the help!
