    Hello! I moved my chickens' roost, and they haven't used it after three nights. I read about how I could wait until they were cozied up at night and move their sleepy bodies. The trouble is I can't reach the roost without crawling into the coop; it's only 25" inside. I think I positioned the roost well for them, but maybe it's too close to the wall or there's some other problem. Any ideas? Thanks!

    Here are photos of my Light Brahma- Nicki (or Nicholas) Minaj, Cuckoomaran - Sheryl Crow, New Hampshire Red - Reba McIntyre and White Leghorn- Shakira. Second photo is the slim and elegant Shakira, and third is Kelly Cluckson, my other New Hampshire Red. Eggy Azalea (not shown) rounds out the flock.
