So, we have 6 full sized hens, and 4 bantam chickens (2 female, 2 male). When we first brought the bantams out (they are a few months younger than the others), we kept them in a different coop. At first they slept in that coop well. Then they moved to sleeping on an old swing trellis right near coop. I had to climb up and get them down every night to put in coop. Later, after the chickens got along better, I moved the bantams to the bigger main coop. It took a few days, but they started going in there at night and sleeping in it fine. Then after a couple of weeks, they started to sleep in the tree above the coop. Since our coop is 2 stories (3 if you count pen part underneath it), it is a good 6 feet tall. Now I have to climb up a ladder, on top of the coop, and get the chickens out of the branches of the tree. I have tried to put them up earlier. Sometimes that works, and sometimes it just ends up with us running around the yard a lot. My question is, is this a bantam thing, or just my weird chickens thing? They are a little bigger than a robin size but smaller than a pigeon. I wouldn't worry too much except, I don't want them eaten by a possum or other tree creature. picture of chickens on trellis, and on our picnic table to get a sense of size. Thanks.
