chickens won't roost.

I have six black australorp's that are eleven weeks old. That will not roost, they huddle and sleep on the ground. How do you teach them how to roost?

I have a flock of six that include 2 Australorps and one of them is at the top of pecking order. They are all 18 weeks. My flock only roost during the day and huddle together at night in the coop at the top of steps on the landing. My guess is it to cold to be on a roost at the moment or maybe they will when they are older. Or I need a larger roost for sleep and don't feel safe enough on the one that's in the coop.

Great article on VENTILATION, one of THE MOST IMPORTANT aspects of coop design.

Fantastic treatise to help decide how much SPACE your chickens need.

 

Chicken math is not just 'addition'...but also should include Division, Multiplication and especially Subtraction!!!

 

Quoting centrarchid:

"Make every effort to understand your chicken's biology and the environment that supports it."
