My little silkie, Jethro, is almost 11 weeks old. My other layer chicks have been roosting since they were just a couple weeks old, up high - about 3 1/2 ft. Since Jethro loves to hang out with this part of the flock while free ranging, he naturally wants to roost with them, but he can't fly up to this particular roost. At roost time, he'll run back and forth looking up at the other chicks until it gets too dark for him to see them, then he settles for a lower roost or the top of the waterer for the night. Tonight he was really determined to get up with the other chicks and tried climbing his way up to them by using a piece of plastic fencing that is attached to the bottom of the roost. He failed. Feeling sorry for him, I picked him up and put him on the roost with his buddies, but I'm worried. In the morning, will Jethro be able to fly (or fall with style) down from a 3 1/2 ft. high roost or will he injure himself? Oh and Jethro is almost certainly a she, not a he, as if that matters.
