LOL well not quite but I got a little frustrated tonight trying to teach my chickens how to roost. I have 2 16 week old RIR bantams, 1 4 week old BO, and 1 4 week old BA. I have only had them 3 days now and while the younger ones are really getting good about me holding them some and feeding out of my hand, my RIRs are pretty standoffish and dramatic. You'd think I was stabbing them with needles every time I touch them. UGH Needless to say they make it difficult to put on the roost at night. Tonight was ALL different though. I have been watching them some and the RIRs are much more dominant and aggressive towards the younger 2. Since the younger 2 are much better about being handled I picked them up without drama and put them on the roost. They were quite content and immediately settled down and I think one was snoring. The RIR were NOT happy about this at all. They are plenty big enough to get up there by themselves and I was tired of chasing them so I shut the door to the pen and just watched. It didn't take 2 minutes before they had jumped on the roost and were quite proud of themselves. LOL Now I have a new problem....my little BA thinks its fun for me to put her on the roost and must have jumped off 4-5 times just to run over to me and squeak to be put back on the roost. UGH I'll let you know when I figure how to fix THAT. Thanks for letting me brag!
