At what age do they begin to roost at night? - Page 5

post #41 of 42
Our flock members are 3 months old and they can and do get on the roost some during the day but at night they pile in the corner - all 30 of them. I have gone out to check late at night and they don't move from their pile. A couple will look up but that's it. I assume they will when they want to.

Do I leave the Roost open all night or close it when they get older? My chicks are about 8 weeks old, currently cost it at night. They are really good about going in at sundown. Please advise? In the morning, I open it...Just trying to understand as they get older do I leave that door open?

Thanks. Debra
