hello, i have 6, 18 week white leghorn pullets. they have a weird behavior at night, what they will do is they will go into the coop when is starts to get dark and they will immediately go into the corner pushing themselves closer and not sleeping. i don't know why they do this, they never did this when they where chicks when i had them in my lighted garage. could it be that they are afraid of the dark and i need to put in a light? the temperature here at night never gets below 60 so i don't think that they are cold. i just want my chickens to feel safe in their house. another question, they will 19 weeks on Saturday, when will they start to lay eggs, i will be building the roosts tomorrow. i will take any tips on building the roosts and getting started on laying eggs. any help is appreciated.
