    Well tonight was the night, I took you guys advice and bought the deer netting and put it on top of the run and on the sides of the house!![​IMG] So tonight was the night that I was determined not to put them up in the coop myself. So I went to a family get together and when I came back it was dark, I took a flashlight out to the pen hoping they were in there coop roosted on their own.[​IMG] What do you know all 7 of them on there roost asleep!![​IMG] Thank goodness!

    Thanks for all the advice everyone! [​IMG]

    I am personally jealous. I have finally gotten most of the new babies to go in. All but 5 renegades! Today a couple were looking up the ramp at least but the other 3 were already tucked in under the house in their usual place. Slop through mud and pick up muddy feather balls and put in coop. Again -"remember, you are supposed to do this yourselves!" Going on 3 weeks now. Soon...
