Why are my chickens aggressive at night when roosting?

Well, you're the one there seeing it, so you're probably in the best place to judge.

But you came here asking for advice, so we're giving advice :)
Exactly. And I don’t mean to sound mean at all but are a bit confusing. I think you are actually well on your own two feet my dear. You actually sound like you have a pretty good handle on your issues yourself that are working for you. Stick to that.

Yes I know. I'm really bad at explaining things through online and when I type something it sounds rude when I'm really trying my best not too lol.
That's because TEXT doesn't lift the corner of its lips or have a twinkle in its eyes. It doesn't offer clues to intent with a change in tone, as in a question that raises its tone an octave on the final word, etc. It lacks the personality that softens a difficult message or indicates to those reading your words the full mood of the thoughts written.
Sadly, this lack of personality of the written word can seem rude; but we know you didn't mean it that way.

Sure hope that these upcoming changes to your coop sort out the problems.

Update: I have moved the feed that was in the coop outside and they loved it. Also thank you for all the help and responses. I have a plan on where I'm putting and moving around the roosts. I'm adding another vent fir more air flow. I might find a smaller water though and put that in the coop and keep the bigger one outside bc it takes up space. Thank you again and I will update you all shortly.

I just keep one of those larger but yet smaller than a huge run chick waterer in the coop instead of a having the space taken up by that larger waterer in mine and it works well. Or you could use a hanging one possibly.

That's what I was thinking of hanging the water. I was also thinking of making something on the outside of that wall and have the water nipples or cups going through to the inside so the water is on the outside but they are still able to get to it throught the inside.

Nipples and cups won't stay thawed in winter.
Horizontal nipples work well with a heater.
