I see all these posts about moving pullets who like to sleep in their nest boxes/nest shelf every night until they get the hang of sleeping on roosts. My girls are 23 weeks old, and ever since I moved them outside at 10 weeks, all 7 plus the roo have slept in the nest shelf. They learned to lay eggs there, and with my kids mucking out the shelf a couple times a week, the eggs stay mostly clean. I didn't know about teaching them to sleep on the roosts until it was too late. I guess I just need a few encouraging shout-outs from others who let their chickies sleep wherever they want and deal with a few tiny poo spots on the eggs. Anyone? Please?
