ok so how do you get them in the eglu at night? they refused to go in it all day and no amount of raisins could coax them in. In the end dh crawled into the run and gently 'shoved' them through the door. certainly wont be doing that every evening!!
its just a boring green eglu! didnt fancy pink or purple!! the hens are between 16 and 20 weeks and no we dont have a cockeral. they seemed quite content when i let them out this morning. guess we will wait and see what happens tonight!
aw, theyll get used to it. at this time of year, as long as they are shut in the run beofre dusk, theyre safe enough. you can go out after dark and close the house door if you like, but i just leave mine at night in this weather.
re treats; try grated cheese. mine go NUTS for grated cheese.
