So dusk has fallen and I go out to lock up the coop

    I have a splash Orpington hen Picasso (she is about 15 months) who rarely ever puts herself to bed. I have only found her on a roost, twice. If I am late to lock up, she will lay just inside the coop door.

    When I do finally get around to locking up her coop – the main coop – it is usually late, way after dusk and all chickens are in bed……but Picasso.

    Picaso, likes to greet me, walk in front of me back to the coop and then go into the coop. I then follow her and pick her up, setting her in an empty spot on the roost.

    Here is an older picture of her during the day.

    Video from last night - it is so dark, you can hardly even see her:

    Horsey, after the first 18 seconds I couldn't see a thing. [​IMG] I did enjoy your other videos though. [​IMG]


    Picasso is very pretty. [​IMG]

    Picasso is so sweet looking. She must like her bedtime, I mean roost time ritual.

    The video was dark indeed but the geese crack me up; they sound like they could honk all night long, if given the slightest reason.

    I can never sneak around when the geese see me [​IMG] They do honk at night, if something disturbs them.


    I think you are right and Picasso likes her ritual.​

    That is priceless. Our poultry like their little routines as much as our cats and dogs do.

    Thanks for sharing how to embed video. I keep thinking I should take more video of my animals.
