    I do have a roost in the coop. Not sure of all of the breeds. 2 are Brahams. I heard they were good winter birds, not sure how true that is. These are my first chickens.
    I went out at about 4a.m. this morning and 3 birds were in there. I think last night was the coldest night yet. Then this morning when I went out again around 6:30 4 came out of the coop, so maybe they are figuring it out? I checked on them last night at mid night, it was windy cold and wet, and they were all bunched up on the roost out in the pen...
    I was thinking if I heated the floor some how, they would like being in there.
    Attached are some pics of the coop and run...I have a 2" x 4" across the run and a 2" x 3" in the top of the coop.

    When my chickens were young, I found I often had to "put them to bed" They slowly learned that when it was dark, it was time to go into their coop.

    Well, I think you should try to put a roost inside the coop. That is an instinct, they would rather sleep outside on the roost, then in the coop on the floor?????????????

    I know, I know, it's late to be asking....but...did anyone raise turkeys this year and have them butchered for sale for Thanksgiving?
