How long does it take chickens to go up the steps to bed?

Recommended Posts

You might need to help them realise the coop is their bed for the first few nights. Some chickens realise it very quickly, some might take some days. Best to pick them up in the dark and put them in the coop, if they don’t do this themselves.

It took my ladies a few days to get the hang of it.

I put a light at the back of the Eglu for the first few nights, and that seemed to help. I got a cheap battery powered LED light with a remote control so I could switch it off once they were inside and had settled down.

Like Chuck'sNZ I put a light in, although I wasn't fortunate enough to find one with a remote. After a couple of weeks my girls went from zero contact to little stairmasters, so it may just be time.
