My 8 week old Black Star and EE pullet are not going in the coop at night. They all mash together in a hollowed out stump in the run. I usually go out at 9:30 pm or so to toss them in the coop. If I go out any earlier, they just run outside again. I have to close up the coop then and I prefer to leave it open at night. I've been doing this for over a week now. I think the 6 adult hens are chasing them back out at nighttime. Any advice? Thanks DH said to just leave them out, but I haven't had any predator problems so far and I don't want any to be tempted by seeing a nice juicy chicken dinner just sitting out at night. That and they need to go inside come winter. But I also want to go on a few overnight trips this summer and I want to make sure they know to go in without me.
