    I'll be in the barn!
    Thought this would be fun to do. What are some things you notice your girls or boys doing differently than in the summer, now that the days/nights are cooling off?

    One thing i noticed is that my rooster, Wings, is sleeping on one foot on the roost.
    One other thing: everyone has mostly finished with the molt.

    Post what you notice your chickens are doing differently in the colder months!

    My Houdan triplets are going to roost very early, half an hour before the older birds.
