Hi guys. Phew, they made it to college. My four-week old rascals are settling into their outdoor brooder which is inside the coop (it will actually be their future 'droppings pit'). A few questions about this awkward teenage phase: 1) How long are they in there, before they graduate on to living in the regular coop? 2)I've read about training them to perch on a roost. Should I try this in their outdoor brooder by installing a good branch or maybe a 2 x 2, rounded edges in there? (I sorta feel like they should be able to figure this all out, but if you think it's a good idea...it's no problem to install). Thanks, as always-- Anne Marie.
