Hens refuse to sleep in coop

Recommended Posts

 have an Eglu with a 12 ft run. I got 3 hens from from a friend and at first they were doing great going in the coop at night. However, recently I added a high perch in the run, and every night my 3 hens have decided that they rather be up in the perch than go on the coop. We live on a 3 acre property behind a farm, so I’m afraid of predators so every night I go and help them into the coop, which is getting to be exhausting.
I’ve checked for mites and don’t see any, although I’m new to this and could missing it.
What can the cause of this issue be? Any help is greatly appreciated
