I caught one of mine roosting on the edge of the brooder bin a few days ago (they're just two weeks old today!) Just put a wire screen across the top. I used hardware cloth because I had gotten some for another project anyway.

My babies have learned that meal worms ARE food. They wont take them from my hand yet, and really don't go as crazy abut them as advertised, but they do seem to like them. Someday I'll find that treat that they find absolutely irresistible and will love and adore me for bringing it.
Oh, and they have finally learned that they are supposed to go inside of the MHP 'cave' instead of sleeping on top of it.
