Hiya gang, My chicks are now a month old. They go out in the enclosed run early in the morning through an opening I cut in the wall of the coop (which has a little door that I keep open all day and slide over in the evenings when they're inside the coop for the night). For the most part, they're fairly decent about going into the coop from the run on their own when it's starting to get dark (I still have to herd a few into the coop from the run every evening). Thing is, once they're inside the coop at around 8:15 to 8:30, none of them will 'roost'. They still sleep on the floor. Some will roost for a few minutes on the top edges of the milk crates, but eventually jump down and sleep on the floor. I've got three roosts for them at 3 ft., 4 ft., and 5 ft., with an easily climbeable ladder for them to the lowest roost, yet they don't go up it to roost at night (doesn't matter if I leave the light on all night or not). Is 1 month old still too early for them to roost at night? Would coming into the coop after dark and they're asleep and placing them on the roost train them any? Thanks for any insight on this, it's one of those things in all these years of helping my mom with her birds I just seemed to miss paying attention to.
