    You might have to place them on the roosts by hand for a night or two so they figure out what they are suppose to do. [​IMG] Post some pics of your coop when you get it done.

    We had to put ours on their perch. They were determined to sleep in a big pile on the floor. [​IMG] Now they all line up and sleep snuggled on the perch.
