My chickens will be moving into an Eglu Cube for the winter. I was wondering if anyone has experience with chickens that are used to roosting, then moving to a coop where there's no roost. Do you think it will it upset them much?

As a followup - they didn't really seem troubled at all by this. The first night, there was a little fussing and shuffling as they got used to the floor texture. It was also pretty dark inside the Eglu compared to outside, and I think that confused them. Tonight's the second night, and they went in and settled down happily. I set a solar-charged light module inside to help them see to get situated, then removed it when I shut the door for the night.
