    We were having trouble keeping them from flying over their fence, so we reclipped a couple of the chicks wings (we had clipped them a few months ago). Now one of the Barred Rocks doesn't seem able to get up into the nesting boxes or on the roost at night - any suggestions?

    Only thing I can suggest is a ramp.

    mine are bad fliers and i was too lazy to build a ramp - I put an upside down milk crate as a step that they can hop onto and then it's a shorter jump to the roost.
