    It's been my experience that so long as the roost is higher than the nest boxes they generally will get on the roost. Maybe lowering the boxes would work, too.

    My neighbor put his nest boxes higher than his roost. He had poles scattered around an open front coop and run. All 20 of them roosted in them and layed in them as well. He is away in the military and I was looking out for them. I covered the nest boxes with chicken wire to keep them out and built new ones about 2 ft off the ground. I built a ladder roost for them to roost on and took up the other roosting poles. Some of them wanted to roost in the new nest and tried to find other places to roost on. I sloped the top of the nest to keep them from roosting on the dividers and took old chicken wire and balled it in lengths and put it on anything they might try to roost on to make it uncomfortable for them. To stop the few that wanted to roost in the nest, I took a large piece of cardboard and right before roosting time put it across the front of the nest. I did this for about a week and they got the message and when I stopped putting the cardboard up, they stayed on the roost and did not return to the nest.

    she gave us an assignment for the break to draw what we would see in a vaginal cytology smear for early and late proestrus, estrus, diestrus and anestrus and list clinical signs on the back.... the extra credit HW is just as creative!!!
