We have 5 chickens. They are almost 20 weeks and they just will not roost... and no none are silkies. At first all 5 started pilling themselves on top of a tiny ledge in the coop. I don't kow how they all fit but they jammed them selves up there. I closed off that area so they could not get up there. Then they started sleeping in the nesting boxes. I closed them off but now that they are almost 20 weeks I am afraid they might start laying soon so I took the hard wire cloth off and they are right back in the boxes. I raises the roost higher thinking it was not heigh enough still no luck. I changed the roost to a wider flat board thinking it would be easier for them to get on. I have gone out several times late at night and tried to place them on but they all freak out and jump right off. Is there anything else I can do to train these little buggers? Don't they know they are chickens? Seriously what should I be doing. I feel like giving up!!
