Your roosts are to low.....just small speed bumps on the way to the nest box really....OMG!! Thanks first for responding!! Velcro pads!!!! Brilliant!! And fake eggs? Who'd have thought.... Will pink plastic easter ones with no chocolates inside suffice??
Any whose.... here's pic's. No judgy!! This is my first go at chicken keeping since I was a child and it's technically not allowed in my county...shhhhh! So my top notch Amazon coop is a good way to get my feet wet and decide if I'm successful at this and like it, lolol! I only have 3, a barred rock and 2 road island reds. The barred rock is the boss, and most likely the trouble maker.
You will need to make modifications to the coop so the nests are not looking like the highest point.
I would look at making the dividers go the full height of the nest box and raising the roosts at least 6 inches.
@aart posted a link to how someone else dealt with the poor design. Have you looked through it?
