Good morning everyone. This is my coop. It was existing on the property when I moved in in March. I have been renovating it. I added the brooder on the right. As you can see, it is two levels. The top floor was set up as a children's play house with open windows so I enclosed those and added the door, and replaced the somewhat open air roof with plywood and tarpaper. I will be roofing it with shingles or metal soon. I am in SW Colorado so there is almost no threat of rain. I just got it "dried in" Saturday. My question is this: The chicks lived in the brooder since I brought them outside. They segregated themselves from the hens when they had the choice between the brooder or the bottom floor of the coop. (eggcept for one of the rooster chicks and a few of his girlfriends everyone else slept in the brooder) Now that the penthouse is ready for occupation and that I've been closing the brooder door they almost all are cramming themselves into the bottom floor of the coop. I had three takers out of 17 for the penthouse last night. How can I convince them that the penthouse is the place to be? I have some straw bedding in there and a couple roosting bars. I mean....I would sleep in there. It's pretty sweet! ....as a side note, my roosting bars are 2x2's, I've since read that I should have used 2x4's with the long side up so I will be making that change but would that be enough to discourage them? Thanks for any input!
