Have just got our first 3 chickens last week (red shavers), they are now trained to go up and down the ramp to their house at their will (last week I had to place them up top in their house). At nighttime, they go inside no problems...but they now lay in the nest box and sleep? The last few nights i've gone out about 10pm and picked them up and put on the perch and I'm thinking they stay there until morning. Do I keep doing this until they get the habit of going to their perch, or should I block off the nestbox early evening so they can't get in there and then go out and open up access when it's dark? Any thoughts?
