    I went to go check my hens, and rooster and I noticed there all perched since I've moved them to a new coop with perches, my rooster and another hen are perching fine but one hen isn't her rear end is facing up as if she was leaning forward, she's fluffed up and she's just doing that, her last coop she dident have to perch because she would sleeping in her box.. is it because she's new to this? Or is she sick?

    Hello :frow and Welcome To BYC! If you think your hen is sick, you might want to try posting in the Emergencies forum about her ... https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/10/emergencies-diseases-injuries-and-cures Is she only doing that at night or during the day? How is she acting otherwise, eating, drinking etc, how old is she is she laying eggs? Are there no nesting boxes in the new coop / could she be broody?

    . She only dose it at night time,she eats fine and drinks plenty of water, and I dunno when she should start laying eggs again she's a lemon blue old English game bantam, and she only lays eggs seasonally so in a couple more weeks I suppose? And there's one nesting box for her since it's just her and another pullet

    Does she seem to try to get an egg out?
