    How high will cochins roost? do they have any issues to take into consideration?
    My 6 week old cochin pullet is about 2x as heavy as my EE already, the EE loves to fly around but the cochin can't seem to get more than a couple of inches off the ground. will this be a problem later?

    My cochins always liked the low roosts and if they were too high they would just sleep on the floor. The LF cochins do get pretty heavy so I wouldn't put the roost up too high so they don't damage their feet when jumping down.
