The chickens always come home to roost in their coops at night.........well, I have two who never do! We converted an old but cute dog house plus a big dog crate to a new chicken coop for my 2 Polish cross chickens. They were in their with their mom since week one they were born. Mom moved herself back into the main coop after about 7 weeks, so the little ones stayed in there. I want them to free range, too, as all my other chickens do, but every night they try to fly up on some shelves on my patio or they try to fly high into some nearby trees. Each and every day it is the same, I have to pick them up and put them into their coop with attached run myself. So I thought by not letting them out at all for a week or longer, they would go back into it at night, but they do not. The newest thing actually is that they do not even sleep in the coop anymore at night, but in the attached covered dog run. Safe, but I would like to see them in the coop for more protection and I am tired of picking them up each and every night to put them back into the coop/run. Any advice?
