My pullets are a little over 6 weeks old and I put them out in their new chicken tractor/coop last week (it's an A-frame design with the coop on top and a run at the bottom, the catawbacoops.com design). I finally got them going up into the coop at night by themselves, without having to manually pick them up and move them, but they're sleeping in the nest box area. Should I do anything to keep them out of the nest boxes for now? The problem is that they crap all over it, and I don't want them to get used to using it as a sleeping area if they'll also be laying eggs there. I tried removing the bedding (wood shavings) from the nest boxes, but they still sleep there. Should I try to block the nest boxes off for now, or will they be OK sleeping there? I'm hoping they eventually start sleeping on the roosting bar instead of packed into the box. It has been getting cold at night, so maybe they just like cuddling up with each other in the corner and they'll spread out when it gets warm. Here's a pic of my chickens: In this pic the two Wyandottes are on the roosting bar, but at night they sleep in the nest box (which is towards the bottom of the pic, you can't see it).
