Have your pullets slept like this?

  1. I have been googling trying to see if I can find anyone that has had pullets/chicks sleep like this before. We only have two that are almost 9 weeks now and they choose to sleep like this at night. They are still in a large brooder at night. They aren't in their coop yet. They have a 2x4 roost bar that they don't sleep on. I'm worried they aren't going to roost at night once in their coop.

    The pullet that is sleeping on top of our other pullet is the dominant one. They always slept next to each other but the past week or so have been sleeping like this.

    Anyone see this before?
