1) I am trying to show these 4 chicks their perch, but they don't seem to care for it, when do they generally start using the perch? 2) I have a lamp 125W (they are in a tractor outside) hanging and it is on most the time. If I turn it off they seem more active than when it is on. Perhaps this should be common sense to me, but it seems backward. I guess my question is when is it ok to turn the lamp off? They are well feathered. 3) this one is just a comment; Holy Crap! They poop a lot!!!! And they are just chicks!!! Anyway, if anyone can answer my few questions, that would be great. Oh, they are 2 australorps and 2 orpingtons.
