    I built a low roost in my covered secured run. They went into the chicken coop for a few weeks, but eventually wanted to stay outside from about 3 months on. At the end, I built some steps up to the roost. They never really wanted to be inside.

    Check your local extension agent, USDA field office, etc to see if you have blackhead in your area before turning them loose with chickens.
