    I have a chicken who just started sleeping in the doorway of our coop...like, halfway in and halfway out. We are currently fixing our coop door but once we get it back on there, I guess it shouldn't be a problem. But I do think this is weird--did any of yours ever try to sleep in the doorway?

    Some roosters will do that, they are keeping watch.
