None of the Orpingtons use the roosts at all, and the hens, which have just began laying, are not using the nesting boxes. Does anyone have a clue why????
Here are a couple pics of the new coop my DH built for my new flock. The roost goes all the way around on 3 sides of the room, and they have plenty of nesting boxes.
