So, I have six chickens... I have six roosts. 3 of my birds sleep IN the nest boxes Here's what happens, every night. In order of age, hen 1 and hen 2 go in, curl up on the top roost, and sleep. Hen 2 kills anyone who tries to come up there, Hen 1 sits happily in the corner. Hen 3 comes in, takes up residence on the middle roost. Hens 4-6 attempt to sleep on the bottom roost, and are repeatedly smacked in the head by hen 3, until the give up and sleep in the nest boxes. Attempt number 2, the coop is double in size, with chicken wire across the middle, and a small door between the two sections. Hen 1 and 2 take up their favourite spot, guard it, and go to sleep. Hen 3 takes up residence in the new half, guards the ENTIRE darn HALF. Hens 4-6 try and sleep in the original section, on either the middle or lower roost. if they jump up to the middle roost, they either get pecked in the back of the head by Hen 2, and Hen 3 takes offence, comes over and beats them up. If they all huddle on the bottom roost, they squabble, and occasionally Hen 3 gets annoyed and beats them up anyway. Attempt 3. Chicken wire is removed (because hen 3 takes the whole darn space anyway. all roost in the new section are made the same height, and spread about so that chickens cant reach between them and peck each other. Hens 1 and 2 take their original spot, and hen 3 patrols FIVE FLIPPING ROOSTS and makes the youngens sleep on the floor. I give up!! I am sick of scrapping a nights poop out of the nest boxes, and when I dont I get no eggs!!! Help!!!
