    My girls have figured out at dusk they need to go into the coop, good thing cause they are no fun to chase around. Right now the they are free to roam my yard, the pen isn't wired in yet. I opened up the big door to make sure all 5 were inside and they had all "pig-piled" on top of each other in one nest box what a sight! Next time I'm out with the camera I'll post a picture.

    Well tonight it was dark when I remembered to check on them...once again they were all piled into one box! I picked them up and moved them one by one onto the perch...Maybe tomorrow I'll get that picture!

    when I planned our coop I made sure the perches were just right - and all my girls love to " pig pile " in the corner of the coop under the perches ! every once in awhile someone will get the idea to sleep on the perches, but as long as they are happy I let them sleep where ever LOL

    LOL! Silly chickens! I tried for MONTHS to get my girls to sleep on the roosts.. eventually I gave up. I change the nesting box bedding constantly, since a bunch roost there.. a bunch on the floor.. and a couple on the fantastic roost poles dh thoughtfully installed.


    I think the silliest thing my girls do is come running when they see me.. and no matter how many times I SEE them run.. cracks me up EVERY time!
