Chicken wont go back into the coop at night

Post  F&F on Thu Sep 11, 2008 10:32 pm

Hello all!

We recently got a plush new house for our two chickens, however one of them has decided not go back in in the evening, we have found her hiding in a bush a few times and she has also been hiding in their run. She seems to be ok other than this, her comb is red and pert.

Any thoughts?

Thanks
Very Happy

Hi F&F! Welcome to the Clucks & Chooks forum!

So are your chickens new or have you had them for a while and just replaced their coop with a new one? How high are the roosting bars?

Chickens can be funny little characters and if they're unfamiliar with something they'll not recognise it.

I have one hen who's getting on a bit and in the summer decided she wanted to camp out under the stars on the odd day which resulted in us having to call out to her and we eventually found her nestled conveniently in the middle of a bunch of thistles! Shocked Who knows why she decided against roosting in the coop with the others...maybe one of the other girls suffers with bad wind?! Very Happy

Anyway, keep us posted on how she's getting on!

Hi F&F!

How are your girls doing? Are they all venturing into their plush pad now?
