    We are going to change the roosts in our new coop this Sunday. They use the one that we put in but only the top one. I might in the end put poop boards under them. We are cleaning the coop and doing this work on Sunday. I installed a coop cam today but I have to get it hooked up the internet not just my local network. I am still working on that. Anyway, will changing the roosts confuse the girls. I don't want to set them back, they are all laying right now.

    i changed from limbs (because they weren't using them) to flat 2x4s and it did not upset the egg laying. they did start roosting though. now move the nest boxes and they may get a little confused.
