Little Sapphire’s not quite getting it. Every night her 40+ flock mates find their way to the coop and their sleeping places but nature is telling Sapphire to go as high as she can, and the ‘attic’ (the space under the roof of the run) is proving quite attractive for her, and proving difficult for me to stretch over and coax her to a place I can pick her up and put her on a perch!
Tonight though, she took Crystal with her and both of them were up there perching as dusk was falling, as if saying to me “we’re fine here, just check the others and leave us alone”. I was one step ahead though! I left a piece of wood across the top section, so that when they perched on this I could simply slide it forward and put them in the coop where they should be!
