    Will my girls naturally roost or do I have to teach them? They are 9 wks old. I'm afraid the silkies can't get up but I'm sure the RIR's can. They have not been in their coop yet. I'm still bringing them inside at night [​IMG]

    Your RIRs will figure it out, most likely. You can put them up there at night to get the idea. You can get your Silkies a low perch at floor level, I believe.
