    i let mine out for some free range time today and ended up having to put them back in their run so they could get to their coop. They seemed to keep trying to get in but couldn't find the door and the ended up waiting for me on the back step. lol.

    Do i have to train them to find the door? Its a 3 ft opening with 2 solar lights right inside of the run....

    throw some yummy scratch through the door just a little and only give them that treat when you are getting them in the coop
