Hi everyone. My coop is a repurposed rabbit hutch, about five feet long, three and a half feet wide and two feet high, and it's on legs a couple of feet off the ground. After I got my chicks this past summer, I installed perches in the run and one in the coop. At the time, I had six birds (lost two to disease, gave another away when it turned out to be a rooster). Only the leghorns would use the perches in the run (the Orpington will sit on a tree branch I put in there) and NONE of them would use the perch in the coop, and in fact, it seemed very much in their way, so I took it out. The three remaining chickens snuggle together in a corner of the coop every night. I see posts about how to get chickens to use roosts. Why is this important? Thank you.
