Hi all. I have two eight-week-old australorp pullets who just went out to the coop this week. They seem to have no roosting instinct and prefer to just hunker down in the dirt outside in their run at dusk. Is this typical of australorps? I always thought roosting was instinctive behavior. Every night this week I scoop them up and take them in the coop and sit them on the roost. Once in place, they spend the night. Not very bright, these things.
