I have 3 hens and one rooster all 6 months old and until recently all four were sleeping on the top roosting bar (of two). Recently one, who has become the lowest in the pecking order, has started sleeping on the edge of the nesting boxes - she seems scared of the dominant hen who I have observed chasing her away from the feed trough etc. For a while the other lower status hen was also trying the nesting box with her, but now one seems to be happy back on the roost. We added a third roost a little further away from the two existing ones which are at different heights a distance apart. It is at the same height as the higher bar. So far none of the hens seem interested at all. We have been opening the back of the nesting boxes and shooing Dottie out but she just goes straight back on most nights, though once she was accepted back onto the top roosting bar. My question is whether it is worth the effort to keep shooing her away or if it matters that she is using one of the nesting boxes (which is not too difficult to clean. None of the hens has used this particular box to lay in. Thanks.
