My 11 chickens who are 4 months old have yet to roost. They huddle together in a corner of my "Chicken Palace" even though there is plenty of room on a thick wooden dowel only 2 feet off the floor. Will they ever start to roost? I'm been told that they could develop foot and feather problems by being on the floor so long and rubbing against each other so often.
