    I have 2 Silkies, Salt and Pepper, and they both have roosted on the roost that is about 2 feet off of the ground...
    I have seen post that others do not, and at first mine had not, But tonight I saw them on the stick!

    I put mine on the roost about the same 2 feet off the floor of the coop last night.
    Well I opened the door today and all the other chickens went out but her so I went around and went in the coop and there she was still on the roost.
    I'm thinkin afraid of heights???? LOL
    I decided I will give her a while longer before I try that again. I have only had her a week and she is a year or so old. But I don't remember seeing any perches in her last coop when I went to buy her.
