I get so frustrated with this! I'm just going to have to finally build the rollout boxes and hopefully then they won't want to hang out in them all the time. I've got silkies who hang out in there every night and broodies who hop up to stay for a month! All leave some level of poop in there which makes my eggs messy and my hands dirty picking out the eggs! Left - Silkie (not broody), Center - White Leghorn (molting, she's the head pullet and this is her first time sleeping in the nestbox so suspect she isn't feeling well), Right - Silkie (broody with her four day old chicks under her and her 13 week old chick sitting with her) On the floor are the two 13 week old Maran chicks (cockerel and pullet) who normally sleep in that center box. Here is the roost area - plenty of room for everyone and they all huddle on one stinking 2x4.
