We spend a lot of money and effort on nice, cozy, comfortable and above all safe coops for our flocks, but inevitably we'll have the odd one or few that prefers roosting outside in a tree instead of returning to the coop at night.

This week I would like to hear you all's tips and tricks for training the flock to make use of the facilities provided. Specifically:
- How you do train your flock to return to the coop at night?
- How do you get your hens to use the nest boxes?
