Is it okay for a chicken not to use the roost at night. Last night when I closed the coop up my white rock was on the floor in front of the roost. I figured she would hop up for the night and really thought nothing of it. At 4:00 AM when I checked the coop before leaving for work she was still on the floor. She has always used the roost and is usually the first one in place. She looked fine yesterday afternoon when I fed them some pumpkin. There is pleny of roosting space and I have never seen the others try to keep her off the roost.
