    My hens like to fly up to the best box and roost. Anyone have any help on getting them to use th ladder? I tried meal worms on the steps and that didn't work. I'm thinking about just removing te ladder so they have more room to fly up. Any suggestions?

    Chickens are funny little creatures with strong minds about what they do & don't want. Mine have used ladders on rare occasion. Finally took mine out.

    I took mine out also. It was just taking up valuable space and they never used it.

    I have one but I agree, even as chicks they stopped using it fast.
