    Finished grow out pen for Dels. Anywhere from 2wks to 4wks and all enjoying the weather and putting themselves to roost. RIRs have been going out on there own for 3wks and are now 8wks. All seem know when it's time to hit the hay (no pun intended). No chasing around the runs or putting them on roost. Must be instinct or my blind, dumb luck. I''ll go with the latter.

    Our's weren't the brightest bulbs in the box when we first put them outside...they'd spend the day chillin' in the coop and then huddle in a corner of the run come night time. [​IMG] I was mean and just let them figure it out for themselves, which they did, in a few days.

    When we got our guinea keets, they had the roosting thing down-pat. I'll never understand that one, given the guinea mentality! [​IMG]
