This is my coop. I have 3 chickens living in it for a week now. Clara went inside on her own from day 1, Joséphine joind her the next day. We're now 7 days further and Charlotte still attempts to spend the night in the feeding-dish under the coop. I've been watching them when I open the coop in thes mornings and I think Charlotte is scared to walk up and down the board. She never go's up and when she has to come down she lookes scared. She's really carefull and slow and than she just jumps off. Clara and Joséphine walk up and down without problems. (Clara is the upper-chick and Charlotte is the lowest in range. Charlotte is intimidated by Clara when it comes to food, she's only allowd to eat when it's okay by Clara. At feeding time Charlotte tries to come as close to me as possible (for protection?). Sometimes I pick her up and put her next to the others at the foodtray and it's ok. At least as long as I'm around.) But the biggest problem (for me) is the fact she's afraid to go up and in the coop at night. I'm thinking about changing the board, maybe 2 pieces and a platform in the middle so is semmes less high. Or making a little 'hill' in front of the coop so the borad it's as long as is is now. Does anyone have any ideas how to solve this?
