In the Brooder
- Feb 22, 2015
My 8-week old pullets would rather huddle together and sleep in a corner of the coop rather than use the roosting bar. I made the roosting bar from a 2 x 4" and it has been installed at a modest height above the coop floor. The entire coop is approximately 30" off the ground for ease of cleaning, and I am wondering if the hens sense the elevated nature of the coop and prefer not using the roosting bar. Any thoughts?
