So I finally got all the hens trained to go up on the roost, but that stupid ninny of a rooster WILL sleep in the nest box. I put him on the roost, he tips right off repeatedly until finally he eludes me and runs and hides somewhere that I can't reach him. So the heck with him, says I, until the stupid bugger started telling the HENS that the nesting box was the place to sleep. So now I'm back to putting hens on the roost. They seem to stay there when I put them there, but the idiot rooster makes them all cram into the box until I come out to put them up. Thankfully a couple are disobedient--to him--and go up on their own, but good grief. So what should I do with ol' dunder-head here? Short of soup, for the moment, because he seems to be a nice guy otherwise. He's going to find himself in a roo-box just to keep him from leading the hens astray if this keeps up. (Nest box is a good foot below the roost, before anyone asks).
