Not sure what forum was best for the question but thought I try here. My young flock of 5 pullets have me a little puzzled. This is their first winter. They are managing very well. I'm not particularly worried as they seem to know what they are doing better than I do. LOL. 3 of my 20 week olds are goofy about perching. I've noticed when it's really cold they sleep up on the perch with the other 2. But if it's warmer they want to sleep on the floor in the sand. Before the cold weather hit I tried to put them up on the perch at night. But they would kind of freak out and hop down. Then the cold weather hit and they were all up on the perch cuddled together so I thought they finally "figured it out". But now we are having a warmer spell in New England and those 2 or 3 are back on the floor at night. Does this make sense to anyone? I'm just letting them do their thing.
