about coming home at night (General Discussion)

by BennieAndTheJets, Friday, May 12, 2017, 17:09 (134 days ago) @ amarcoux

Cindy has several suggestions in her article on "training" (see articles)

I can add to that, that I had to intervene and change things when I saw what our birds did: the weaker ones got attacked coming in through the door

what can help is if you have more than one door or a very wide door

or I put millet in the far corners of the coop/run when I call them in, so the stronger birds do not stand by the door

sometimes, still today, I have to go in first and keep the stronger birds at bay and then the weaker ones will come in behind me - they know

yes, that is quite normal =]

but I would draw the line at injuries - sorry this happened to you and I hope you can resolve it and enjoy being around and thinking about your flock again! :a:
