I am new to all of the chicken loveliness. I love them much more than I thought I would! I have 9 hens. I started with 2 RIRs that my girlfriend was giving away. Then dear hubby brought me home a grab bag of what I believe to be 1 leghorn, 2 more RIRs, 2 buff or golden colored (he says sex link), 1 black (he says sex link) and 1 barred rock. I don't know what all of em are, but I love em anyway. So the hubs built them an awesome coop and they love it. They laid in the boxes from day 1, but they won't roost on the roosting poles. I've tried putting them up on the poles so they'd get the idea, but only one showed some interest and now they are all just sleeping on the floor. Any ideas on how to get them up there and off of the floor? Thanks!
