Have you tried treat training? Shaking a can full of whatever they especially like accompanied by some vocal call, like "chick,chick,chick" doesn't take long for them to get it. Maybe a few days. after that you have currency to get them to go where you want them. Rewards for compliance, of course: positive reinforcement goes a long way towards getting the results you want.
