    I have built a beautiful raised coop for my girls with an inside room nicely lined with straw and with boxes for laying, but my girls just want to sit huddled together on top of the coop at night. Why don't they want to go inside?

    I can't tell you why, but I think you'll find they'll learn if you put them inside every night just after dark, hopefully only for a week or so.
