All my other 6 wk old bantams are roosting with gusto while this little silkie sleeps on the floor. Is she strange, or is this typical for silkies? Last night I tried to teach her to roost. She's extremely shy and not into being handled anyway, so my lesson did not go well. When I finally gave up, she ran straight to my only cockerel, and hid behind him. He pulled himself up to full height and told me off! It was so great! Then he pecked possesively at her head. Maybe he can teach her to roost.
