    Thank you Kelsie. Yes i was pleasantly surprised myself.For a long time i thought i'd wait till we get a house with a garden and then i'll keep chickens but one day we just suddenly decided to keep them on roof and it worked! The only fear i had was them jumping off the roof. They actually did! 3 of them tried. but they would spread their wings and land like a parachuter! They gave us quite a scare:)

    [​IMG] I pictured the same thing in my mind, them jumping off the roof. I'm so glad they didn't get hurt. It would have scared me quite badly.
