all that bright, are they? I had no idea moving into the coop was going to be such a series of unfortunate events. After 2, count 'em, 2 weeks, they have finally figured out how to march up the ramp to the coop at dusk. So, now..... I've been wondering about the odd placement of the poop in the sleeping quarters. They have a nice, long 2x4 for a roost. Tonight, they went to bed early enough that I could spy through the window and I discovered that they are all attempting to roost on the small kickboard we have placed against the clean out door. It is a 2x4 standing on it's skinny side, directly against the wall. So, they have been sleeping every night with their faces smashed up against the wall, 3" off the floor. I opened the door and place them all up on the real roost. This of course freaked them out. I opened the door again and placed them on the roost. I closed the door. They jumped down. I opened the door and placed them on the roost. I closed the door. They jumped down. Five times. Should I remove the kickboard for awhile?
