My Brahmas wouldn't use the roosts for a while afterthey got put into the "big girl" coop. As they got older one started to roost and then most of them followed suit. I still have one hen who won't use the roost. She wants to sleep in a nesting box. She's five years old so what are you gonna do? I think they do what they are used to doing until one of them gets the bright idea of doing something else. And then they all want to do it.
I know I would use your nesting boxes if I layed eggs. They look pretty good to me! LOL! DH did a nice job.
How do you like the flooring? I've seen that in supply catalogs and have wondered how well it works. Seems like it would be easy to clean.
