Hello! I am pretty new here and you all have been wonderfully helpful so far! I have a dilemma. My chickens (4 RIRS, one rooster) are all 2-3 years old but have only been with me a little less than a month. I built them a little house with a roost and 2 nesting boxes that I thought should be plenty big enough for them - it's 6x4 - as I let them range during the day. It was fine at first - they all came back to the coop at night (I kept them in the first few days) but unfortunately did not use the roost and all pack themselves on top of the nesting boxes, which are the highest thing in the coop. It's a small space for 5 of them. In the past few days, I have found the rooster (Henry!) roosting outside the coop in a lean-to that's next to the chicken house. He roosts on top of a stack of hay, high up, above my head. I've been putting him back but tonight I found one of my ladies with him. Obviously I don't want this to become a pattern - it's very open and not safe from predators. And now it looks like he's going to start taking the flock with him! I'm planning on building a new roost in the coop that's as high as the top of the nesting boxes to give them more room high up - do you think this will solve the problem? Any other suggestions?? I have a picture of the inside of the coop to show you the nesting boxes and roost but can't figure out how to add it! Can anyone tell me how? Thanks!!!
