Hello, new chicken mom looking for advice and tips from folks with experience with chickens.

My name is Moe and my husband recently got me 6 hens. I didn't realize how much I would enjoy keeping them. I want them to be happy and healthy and since I'm new to this I welcome ALL advice anyone is willing to give. My hens are free range, they hate the run. So we built a ladder for them to climb and roost in our holly tree. I don't plan on having fertile eggs but I do worry about where they will lay eggs since they won't use the coop. What could it be that I'm doing wrong?

Hi Moe, as other greeters have mentioned, allowing them to sleep in trees at night does make them more at risk to predation. If you can post pictures and dimensions of your coop and run, maybe we can give you some tips on how to make it more to your flock's liking.

Best wishes!
