we have six 1.5 year old chickens they all roost great, however we added 3 chicks to our flock this year. 2 barred rocks and 1 Easter eggers-when they joined the coup they refused to roost with the others and found a spot in the run that they would roost every night. For a few weeks now we push them in the coup and close it so they end up roosting with the others. But, it's been weeks and they still don't go in on there own. - the BR ended up being roosters so we unfortunately brought them back to the breeder and now left with the young Easter eager alone. Any ideas to help her be comfortable she spends almost the whole day roosting on a tree branch in the run-hops down for some food and jumps back up. At night We are stilll push her int the coup to roost otherwise she just roost in the Run alone Any suggestions??
