We recently inherited some chickens- 3 silkies, 1 Japanese Banty, and 2 Ameraucanas. Our coop was very make-shift, and today we FINALLY got the new hen house out and and fencing expanded) So, now that they have actual roosts inside their hen houses, how do I get them to use the roosts?? Tonight the Ameraucanas were sleeping in the nesting box together. The three silkies were sleeping all together in one nesting box, and the Jap Banty was in her usual spot- roosting on top the nesting boxes This is quite strange because I think she is at the bottom of the pecking order. Can someone tell me how to get them to use the roosts? The roosts are higher than the boxes at about 3.5 -4.5 ft up, with no ladders. It is near freezing tonight, so maybe they're cold?? We don't have insulation in the coops or heat lamps. thanks!!
