this is my second time having chickens. i have up the first flock when i moved here from georgia. i was searching for a fes RIR chicks to start my new flock and my friends dad had a few birds he needed to get rid of. my buddy wend and got the 5 he was giving up and i ended up with a BR and white leg horn. they are just over a year old. i have a nice little tractor for them to sleep in (see my avitar) with nesting boxes and a perch for them to roost on. when i got them i kept them locked up about a week so they know where home is. the problem is when i let them out durring the day they free range then when it starts getting dark they want to roost ontop of the tractor. so i have to go out every night in the dark and put them in the tractor. where i live at if i left them ontop for a night they wouldnt be here in the morning. im thinking about trying to trade of the leghorn and getting a few more barred rocks. but dont know if that would change things up enough to get them sleeping inside or if i will be catching them all everynight. what to do? also i have 2 nesting boxes in the tracton and they pull all the straw out of the boxes and make a nest on the ground. if i move the tractor durring the day the BR will lay eggs under the porch untill i keep them locked up a few days again. AHHHH!
