Welcome! Your chickens sound like my chickens when I just put them outside. All 24 would pile up in a corner and ignore the roost. Slowly week by week more went onto the roost. Congrats on the beautiful chicks! I want to thank everyone for helping back sometime ago with my chick with the injured leg. Thanks to everyones help, the chick can now run around and walk well (and join its other brooder mates escape the brooder).
