    5 month old golden laced x5 a go in coop at night but sit at door. They don't go roost nor to nesting box. What and/or should I do?

    I had six New Hampshire Reds that slept in a pile on the floor until they started to lay. Then they got the message and started roosting. The rest of the chickens seemed to ignore this behavior.
