    Five of my twelve are finally using the roost! I went out there tonight to shut them up and count - and I only saw seven. I had a mini heart attack, then realized the other five were on the roost snoozing.

    Of course Tony, the big rooster was there! He's so awesome.

    It took mine over a month [​IMG]

    Before that they were huddled in the corner by the door. They also just started getting access to their run (10 weeks old now). The coop was so big I kept them holed up in there to make sure they really knew where home was!
