If anyone has any hints on why my 7 month old cochins refuse to roost or how i can solve this issue, I would really appreciate the advice. I have tried putting them on the roost in the evening, they jump off everytime and go back to the cozy little corner on the floor of the hen house they seem to prefer to sleep in. I've tried also adding roost poles, lowering them, moving them to block the girls from getting to the "favored spot". Nothing works so far. Had other breeds of hens before, and never had this problem. Egg laying time is fast upon me, and I don't want them laying on the floor as well as sleeping there, rather than laying in the nest box. Any hints, please.
