My partner and I started off with one coop and one flock (3 chickens). We then got 'the itch' and had to have some chicks, so we decided to buy another coop and connect the two coops with a run. So it looks kind of like this (the xs are the coops and the dashes are the run). X--------------X We thought that when we added the babies and things settled down that they would choose a coop with their flock and use both coops. Nope. They all squish themselves into one coop! I guess, in a way, this is a good sign, because it means (I think) they have joined forces and are one flock now. But it also means they're squished up together at night and the other coop (which was expensive) is going unused. There really isn't a way to expand the coop they use, and we really don't want to start all over with a bigger coop that all will fit into, because we've invested a lot of money into the setup we have now. Any suggestions? Is there anything we can do to get them to divide up at night and is this even a good idea?
