    Ive got 2 hens in my little back yard and neither of them wil sleep in the coop unless i pick them up and put them in it. They like to sleep smashed up against the pool filter or under the hose where its coiled on the wall..
    The coop is brand new, has shavings in it to nest in (one has started to lay eggs in there) ..
    any ideas to get them to sleep in there?

    I have a few that never go in the coop and I have 2 nice coops. They fly up in the trees and sleep. Crazy birds!
