    I just moved my small flock into a larger coop so I could bring out my 6 weekers into the small coop...anywho....its been 3 nights now and for some reason my girls and their roo are roosting in the window/door out to the run....in turn pooping a LOT where I had hoped they wouldn't :( I have gone out every night and moved them to the roosts but find them back in the window by morning....can I teach them to roost where the roosting boards are? Or is it a lost cause? Tips and tricks?

    not much you can do, except make the roosting boards higher. they like to be as high as they can get.
