    So I'm cleaning the brooder today so the lid is off. I turned around and my ten day old EE is perched up on the side of the brooder that is at least two feet high! WOW they grow up fast.

    Mine were using the lil roost I made them by their second week [​IMG] They just need the option and they'll start "roosting" at a pretty young age.
