It appears our chickens are not sleeping on the roost but rather in the nests. They are still laying eggs but the are making a mess of the nests. Is this a problem and how do you recommend I get them to sleep on the roost or elsewhere.
Pick them out of the nest boxes and put them on the roost. Most of mine use the roost now, but I am still fighting with one stubborn hen. It may take a week or two. From what I have read on here, it's best if the roosts are higher than the nest boxes, because they like to roost as high as they can.
