    recently bought a new chicken coop, but the chickens roost on the old chicken coop roof! They lay in the new coop, but no matter the weather, they roost on the roof of the old coop...why?

    They don't yet identify the new coop as "home." Lock them into the new coop for a couple of days. Chickens are creatures of habit.
