We thought our hens wouldn't sleep in the coop at night because they wanted to be up higher. (Coop is inside enclosed run. Is 8 x 4 x 4) Well we found out the hard way that that's not true. They would like to be in the coop at night, but the rooster won't let them be in there. He chases them out, even tries to beat them up for being in there. Otherwise, he's pretty good with them. He shows them where the treats are, mates with them, and lets them in the coop to lay their eggs... but for nothing else. What can we do about this? In the spring we will be having a shed we'll be using as a coop (split up in sections). What if he tries to not let them in there at night? Should we let them be in their new "coop" for a while before letting him in? And what should we do about this behavior for now until we get the new setup? Please help. Thanks!
