Nothing ever works 100% of the time for you. This certainly includes all your chickens returning to the coop in the evening. Here, we often have as many as twenty to thirty chickens which end up outside, rather than returning to the coop at night. Early this evening, I went out, and was going to close the door behind me. As I turned around to close the door, I noticed, just below the center of the door (there is a space in between the concrete stoop and the container), was a chicken. The bird was laying on the front center foundation support for the container. The odd thing was, me opening and closing the door, as well as stepping over the bird both coming and going, doesn't seem to bother the bird whatsoever. I just went outside again, to have a look around the farm, just to make sure things looked okay. That same bird is still there, snoozing away like it has cotton in Augusta. I'm telling you, that door has been opened and closed at least a dozen times this evening. Either that chicken is deaf and blind, or it just doesn't care about what is going on around it. Beneath that entry doore is one of the strangest places I've ever seen a chicken sleep. Apologies: I tried to get a photo of the bird. But, the lighting - and my shitty camera skills, just didn't permit a quality enough image to post.
