So. I have now had this problem for a couple months and it's driving me crazy and I would really appreciate some advice. So I have an original flock of 4 hens. They dominate my current flock of 15 ( Except one of them who is on the bottom after she went broody ). They always get the perches in the coop where the other chickens wont go. They instead sleep INSIDE of the nesting boxes. It used to only have dividers and no top and they roosted on the dividers so I added a top to it and they now sleep inside of the nesting boxes. I have no Idea why. I even added another big perch by the nesting boxes and they still sleep inside of them. That's 11 chickens in 6 nesting boxes. They are now full of poop no matter how much I try and clean them up. I have tried redirecting them with no avail. Please. Any advice on this ? I want them to be able to use the nesting boxes in the spring for my broodies.
