OK ..... so our 4 ladies haven't quite started using their perch for sleeping yet ...... instead the seem to prefer sleeping in the fresh poos they do through the night. We clean them out every morning of course, but they're ending up with mucky bums!! Yesterday we gave them their first bath to wash their bottoms!! They've never been over-keen on being handled, but they are getting more used to us as time goes by. However, they were REALLY calm when being washed with warm water and so calm they almost went into a trance when they were being "blow dried" with the hairdryer!!! They LOVED it!!!! Now, if only we could train them NOT to sleep where they poop!!!
