I have four hens all about 12 weeks old and when I check on them at night it seems like they're always just sleeping/resting in a pile in the corner of my coop. I have a roost built out of a 2" round post raised up about 6-8" off the floor depending on the litter depth (I built it out of one of those wooden stakes you put on either side of a new tree to support it). I've seen them on the roost from time to time, so they do use it occasionally, but they always just end up in a chickenpile in the corner (kinda cute actually). I'm certainly not worried about it, but I just didn't know if I should try and "encourage" use of the roost. Thanks!
