It's been about 2 weeks and there's no sign of any chicken lounging.

We changed the location a few different times and still no takers.

Think it would be any better if it was off of the ground? Maybe just a foot or two?

I like that idea, and I think it'd work for a lot of chickens. Our Sussex are odd, though ---they're not keen on perching, even in the coop. I suspect that's why they're so inclined to just bed down outdoors.
