    Unless they are still young, they will go into their coop and roost about dusk. As that time of day will change, you need to go with dusk I think.

    I lock mine up tight around dusk. Speaking of which, just found a neighbor's cat they keep in the "garage" stalking my girls. Just released my Germann on it. Git the kitty girl! Even during the day, have to keep watch for predators. Dog was out with them but never saw the cat until I showed her. Caught Lily sleeping on the job. :p Okay, gotta go look for my dog who is way to happy to go for a chase/run.

    I try to get to the coop before it gets to dark ... so a little before dusk for me. I like to do a good look over each night.

    Don't always work that way but I try... :)

    That is too darned cute! I can just picture them in the garden. Talk about spoiled making you put them to bed. :D
