Hello everyone. This is my first post and also I am completely new to raising chickens. I have a 4' x 8' x 6 1/2' chicken coop. There are 3 nesting bens all 13" x 13" x 13". Next to the nesting area I have a "ladder" that is about 4' tall and 2' wide. I have it leaning up against the wall as any ladder would be. I figured they would use that for their roosting. On the right side of the coop I have their little door/ramp so they can come in. I have 5 chickens, all White Leghorns. I just got them today and was told they were 18 weeks old or so. Nooooow my problem. I went in tonight, around 10:30pm, to check on them. I wanted to see if they were roosting on the ladder or not. They aren't. They are all cuddled in the corner next to their little door/ramp. MMMkkk, so they don't like my ladder, fair enough, but then after I made them move I found they are also laying eggs on the floor in that spot. Not cool. I made a nesting area for a reason. I'm lazy and don't want go into the chicken coop area, which is completely covered so I would have to bend down all the way to the coop. I made a trap door in the back where I can just open it and take my eggs. When they are on the floor laying I'm less than happy. Please help. Thank you.
