My 6 pullets go into the coop to roost each night - however even though they have wood to roost on - they all want to be in the corner on the crate. So they squabble and jump all over eachother .. Is this normal? When they are bigger will they spread out along the roost? They never fight or stand on eachother in the day? Thanks!!

SOUNDS LIKE THEY ARE JOSILING FOR THE WARMEST PLACE TO SLEEP. WHO EVER WINDS UP IN THE MIDDLE IS THE WARMEST AND THE SAFEST.

The crates are to hold up my badly built perches! I think the solution will be to get hubby to build me a proper ladder like roost!!!
