    How come my chickens (3), were putting them selves to bed during the day? I found it kinda funny.

    chickens like to rest at certain periods during the day -they obviously feel safe there, and hence thats why they roost there during the day. I'm assuming that they only rest for a while, and then return to eat and do normal chicken things?
