    Hi All,

    Chicks are two weeks old and still not using roost. How high does it have to be? Maybe I have it two high. Thanks

    Welcome![​IMG] I'm glad you joined our community.

    Your chicks are still quite young to begin roosting. I would give them time.[​IMG]

    [​IMG] I'm glad you joined our "flock!"

    Like the other posters said, two weeks is simply rather young for chickens to begin roosting.

    Welcome to BYC! Please make yourself at home and we are here to help.

    My chicks didn't really start roosting until around 4 weeks. So give them time.

    And I also LOVE your avatar! So adorable!
