    One hen sleeps on her roost and the other one stands in the corner and sleeps?!! On hay she doesn't sit down on the hay but stands there in the corner and each night I put her on the roost .. Then she stands on the roost and sleeps!!!!


    Is this normal .. Sleeping and standing?

    Thank you

    When not completely asleep, birds prone to be in odd positions. Bird not hot will have breast in contact with roost and head tucked under feathers of wing.
