Why 4 in each one, if they are my crazy 5 month old girls. So how can I get them to stop sleeping in the top nest boxes (which noone will lay an anyway). 4 of them cram into each one. Two of my older hens sleep on the top of it (even though it is slanted) and the long roost has only a few chickens on it. Sorry about the poor quality photo (from my iphone), but this was too funny. I keep finding poo in there, so I thought I would see what was going on. I laughed so loud. They were in there zone and did not really budge.
