Hi, I just got 2 hens from my neighbor who said his brother didn't want them anymore. I think he said they were kept in a "closed in" box, whatever that means. I built a coop that has 4 nesting boxes inside, made out of wood, with hardware cloth on the floor. I put some pine (horse) shavings in the boxes, but so far the only thing going in there is crickets ! I can't figure out why they won't go up there. Today I built a new ladder thinking that may have been the problem. They have just been staying on the ground and laying in the corner under the nesting box area. They are probably older chickens and maybe they didn't have to go up and roost at night so maybe that's it, I don't know. Any ideas ?
