Do baby chicks roost a lot when moved to the Hen House?

My chicks are energetic when eating and looking around the pen but they seem to be roosting a lot. Is that normal for baby chicks or should they be running around all day. They seem to like hanging out in the hen house.

Some people add roosts at an early age, I prefer to wait until the birds are about 14 to 16 weeks.

It's a moveable feast
