My husband has started to put the chickens in the basement at night. They still don’t have a coop or fenced in enclosure at our new place, and a mama raccoon with 5 babies was spotted in our backyard.
So every night he puts them in a covered cage in the basement and then puts them out again in the morning.
After he had done this for a few nights they started perching on our front porch railing at dark each night and calling out to us that they were ready to be put in. Too cool.
I have some pics, but I have to download them to my phone.
