    We need more info than that. [​IMG]

    How old are they? What breed(s)? What are you using for roosts? Where are the roosts located? Any other information you think might help, I can't think of anything else offhand. I was up late with a sick dog and am still waiting for the coffee to kick in.....maybe another pot would help.​

    Mine are well lubed and not rusting either.[​IMG] sorry I couldn't help it..

    On a serious note, Mine haven't figured out the whole roost thing either. I am just waiting patiently for them to figure it out.

    well the coop they are in now it way bigger than their old one. they are around 40 weeks, white cochin bantams and the roosts are mad of wood... was goin to be tree but we used extra pickets we used on the pool deck. the roosts are in the back right hand corner and around 4-5 feet tall. and there are 3 different levels to the roosts... does this help
