A few months ago my son extended my coop for me, we went from a 4x4 to a 12x8. We made use of as much from the old coop as we could, the roosts are one of the things we kept. I can see from reading on here that the problem i have is that the roosts are at the same level as the nest boxes, so now they go to bed in there instead of the roost and it is a pain as every morning i have to clean all the poop out of the nests and put down clean shavings. I know that my son can remedy the problem for me if i ask by making the roosts higher than the nest boxes, my concern is that for ventilation i have left a 4-6 inch gap all the way round the coop between the walls and the roof. My worry will be that they will have a draft almost directly on them if i lift the roosts, my coop is not very high. Any ideas or possible solutions to my problem? would really appreciate any help you lovely people on byc can give me.
