We have our nesting boxes on one wall in the back of the coop, little ladder going up to it. On another wall, I made these great roosts for them, slanted out from the wall, bottom rung about 2 feet off the ground, each succeeding one a foot or so higher. Well, the birdies never sleep on their roosts---instead, they cram together on the beams that are right in front of their laying boxes! Why don't they like their roosts? Oh, they're 9 weeks old.
