My 5 chicks (6 weeks next Mon.) have been in their coop about three weeks now and had settled in as I'd hoped. Put themselves to bed each night, at first stayed on the floor but gradually learned to move to the lower roost and then the highest one. They were so cute snuggling together. Each night since they've been moved out there, I've had a red bulb out there for a little extra warmth. They are pretty much fully feathered now and I decided tonight to start leaving off the light so they'll aclimate to cooler nights. Well tonight they had a hard time settling down and when they did, only one is on one low roost. The rest are on the floor snuggled together. It wasn't totally dark when I closed them in so they still could have seen the roosts. Sorry this is so long but now my question: Should I continue this with no light and just let them figure it out, leave the light on until they get settled on the roosts and then go back and turn it off, or 3rd option, continue to leave a light until they're a little older. I don't think the temperature is the problem I think it's just the darkness. Thanks in advance for any advice! Oh and when do questions such as these become "Chicken Behavior" and belong on that forum section or what age do they no longer go under "Raising Baby Chicks"??
