Hi all, I had 24 hens and in August hatched 6 chicks. When the new chicks were small they and their Mom were housed away from the main group. I moved all of the chicks and Mom into the main coop around the end of Sept. Ever since all of the babies want to sleep at night in the nest boxes. There is plenty of room for everyone to roost away from the nests. Every night I go down to the coop after dark and pick up the 6 babies that are quite large now and relocate them to the roosts. After some noisey settleing down everyone seems fine. I'm not sure but I don't think the babies go back to the nest boxes that night since it is then dark in the coop. How can I break this bad habit of sleeping in the nest boxes?? Any ideas would be appreciated since its so messy! I think 3 of the babies are Roos, would this have any bearing on the problem?
