I have 5 4400 controllers, 4 are in production & the 5th is backup / hotspare. I have added 2 new ap's to our network & 1 ap has been assigned to the 5th controller. I would like to move that ap to one of the other controllers. I only have 1 controller that is @ capacity of 100 ap's the other 3 are max of 75 ap's.

You can set the primary/secondary/tertiary controller for an AP via the current controller to which the AP has joined.  You may want to reboot the AP after the setting has been applied.  We have this set for every AP so that we can control what AP's move to what controller when a controller fails.

I see those settings on other  ap's but this 1 ap does not give me the options  / drop downs to choose 1st, 2nd etc? Do you have any idea why I don't have the options to choose.

It's not a drop-down menu.  You have to specifically enter the controller name and controller management IP address.  Can you specify what firmware you are using?
