I'm wondering if it's normal for there to be some minor bickering at night when chickens are sorting out who goes where on the perches? A few pecks, chickens shifting around and playing musical chairs etc. For about 10 minutes as latecomers come in and decide to change things up. Asking because I will be adding two new hens in a couple of months and am worried about space. Currently I have 2.2m of space on two parallel perches made out of 2x4's with rounded edges, for 8 chooks (mix of ISAs, Australorps and Sussex). I can add another 40cm to take the total to 2.6m. With the new chooks that will be 10 chooks total. When I look in at night there appears to be spaces for two more, and if it is cooler there is loads of space as they cuddle up the perches are just a step up from the floor (no jumping required) - the coop is all raised 3 feet off the ground. Any more than that and it's probably new coop time. I live in a subtropical environment so the hens spend no time in the coop except at night. If it rains some hang out underneath, some go inside and some just stand in the rain and don't seem to care. They can exit to the fenced run via a one way flap in the morning. It has hardware cloth sides for ventilation although the side facing rain is 3/4 covered by plastic. It doesn't get that cold here obviously The only predators are rare foxes (never seen one but they do exist) and pythons. Also curious if other people have a good coop design for this type of environment? Cheers.
