Last October I took delivery of 35 Buff Orpington chicks; my favorite breed 2 roosters and 33 hens. Today they are beautiful full-grown birds! I have one odd problem with them though and wondered if anyone on DG has had this happen to them.

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.
