    was just reading a bumblefoot article on the chicken chick site and it says to help prevent this to make sure all perches are only 18" off the floor

    SERIOUSLY? what is the point of a "perch" if it is only 18" off the ground? My 2.5-3.5 week old chicks are already using perches for play that are almost 3 feet off the ground
