Hi All, My silkie hatched out 3 Orpington eggs and has been an excellent mum for the past 12 weeks, however, mum and chicks refuse to roost. The silkie has always preferred the box. I have one other chook (a bossy French Marans) who is happy to perch, but the silkie and the chicks all squeeze into the nest box every night. By the morning, the box is full of poop, which is not ideal. I have tried blocking off the nest box at night, but they just sit under the perches and get pooped on by the Marans. Will they eventually learn?
