I have had 6 chooks for just over a week. Youngest about 16 weeks, oldest about 24 weeks. The roost inside the coop is only about 8 inches off the floor and above the nest boxes. One of the older chooks roosts on it every night, but the other 5 chooks squeeze into 2 nest boxes! There's poo everywhere and every night we try to put them on the roost they jump straight off and head to the nest box. There is about 12 inches of roost per chook, so plenty of space. I'm thinking that the roost isn't high enough and maybe I should move it to the higher side of the coop? Have a look at the photo and see what you think. The photo is taken from under the nest boxes lid.
