I have 6 chickens. 2 Rhode Island Reds, 2 black sex links & 2 golden comets. Lately, all but one or two are sleeping on the coop
Floor. They use to all roost together. Why are they doing this? Anyone know?

How old are they, have you checked the coops for mites, especially at night, they can hide in the cracks on the roosts during the day, have you observed the nightly roost rituals, are there enough roosts far enough away so bottom birds can get away from dominant birds. Just some things to check out.
