    Our five ladies are 12 weeks old and real comfy in the new coop and run. However, after a week they still do not go back into the coop, bedding down in the run instead. Every evening we easily catch them and help them "walk" up the ramp, but they will not do it themselves. Has anyone any tricks or tips? Maybe we just need to be patient a bit longer;-)

    Oops! I found this topic well covered in an older thread. Please disregard my question. Thanks!
