I built a coop for my chickens then I put a perch outside the coop for them. Now the only one who uses the coop is the hen that's laying. She only goes in there to lay her eggs then she walks back out, all of them sleep on the perch. So, are coops really needed? I have been considering taking the coop out and just putting in some nesting boxes and adding more branches to the perch. Any suggestions or ideas?
