WHY dont they go into their coop at night? We have 22 chickens we let free-range in the back yard all day. The 10 meaties are rather agreeable and go into their tractor every night. My hens, on the other hand, are night owls and prefer to wander around the yard endlessly. Every night we either have play Chicken Round Up (which is quickly becoming my LEAST favorite game) or wait for all of the chickens to roost on the back of our porch bench so that we can scoop them up and take them to the coop for the night. Were first time chicken farmers and weve been going through this hoopla since we put our chooks outside about 3 weeks ago. Theyre all still pretty young (most are 7 weeks, some older), so Im wondering if theyll ever figure this out . . . Have we already spoiled them? Do we need a new roost in the coop? Do they not like their coop? Does it have something to do with the fact that it stays light almost ALL night? Are they just stubborn? Are we doing something wrong? I dont get it!!! Any help anyone with more experience could offer would be so very appreciated!
