Chicken coop curfew

how the new roosting configuration is working out

I went out to check on how the flock was roosting on their first night in the used pallet chicken coop and found two of the hens hunkering down on a medium sized rock by the gate.

They're easy to pick up when it's dark out, and I'm pretty sure they slept easier inside the new coop once I moved them onto a roost.

We decided to lock them in for the first night, which will hopefully send a clear message that roosting time is to be spent inside the coop.
