We have 6 chicken, the kids got them at a church bazaar and they were supposed to be egg layers but seem to be some hybrid broiler variety so they are BIG chickens We are not keeping them for meat but as pets and apparently they will lay so we will see They have a nice run and a chicken coop they all go into at night and there are some perches up for them but they never go onto them, they all just sleep in the floor. If they are big birds will they still want to perch? Do I need to make low perches? If you put them up on the perch they stay for a few seconds and then sort of crash land themselves back on the floor. Anyone else with hefty chickens that have helped then roost?
