My 11 chickens who are 4 months old still do not roost. They huddle together in a corner of my "Chicken Palace" even though there is plenty of space to roost on thick enough bars only 2 feet off the ground. Will they ever start roosting on the bars? I've been told that they can develop problems with their feet and/or feathers from being on the floor so long and rubbing against each other so often.
