I am new to backyard chicken raising but have 9 little girles in my coop. They are 12 weeks old. I placed them in the coop 2 weeks ago and they are doing great in there new home, except I haven't provided them with a roost so they are sleeping in the nesting boxes. I will be putting a roost in there tomorrow, when I put it in there will they automatically quit sleeping in the nesting boxes? If not is there any thing I can do to break them of the habit? On the other hand is it a problem for them to sleep in the boxes? The only problem I see is that they also use the nesting boxes as a restroom, and this may be normal. As a chicken newbie I am clueless to their habits and behavior. Any and all help will be greatly appreciated.
