So, I had an issue in my coop. I guess I didn't brace the "lip" on the nesting shelf enough, and because they ALL sleep on it (10 pullets and a cockerel) it decided it was going to detach and fall (I assume from the weight over the last several months, it never FELT loose or anything at all or I would have fixed it!). Thankfully NONE of the chickens were hurt. So, yesterday evening I went out and put it back on. I had to wait for help since it takes 2 people to do (one to hold, the other to screw in place, it's 8ft long). They all decided that toward the end of us working they wanted to go into the coop. So all the pullets started piling in. Oreo, my cockerel, knew we were in there working so he was TRYING to be patient and let me finish. Apparently though, it was taking too long. The girls started making some noise to call him, and all of a sudden I hear a loud thud on the outside front of the coop. I don't know for sure, but I think he tried to fly into it. If not, he either tried to spur or ram it or something. I stopped what I was doing and told him hang on, almost done. So he waited, but the poor dude, I felt awful!
