My girls (4 red sex links, 4 Dominiques and 2 WC Polish) are just about 5 weeks and feathered out. They are in the coop full time now since the brooder was getting pretty crowded and they were starting to peck at each other due to crowding, I'm sure. They do have a heat lamp in the coop in case we get a chilly night, but so far they've been fine. My question is about the roosts. I have read that you should put the chickens on the roosts if they don't find them by themselves so they get used to using them. Right now, they sleep on the floor. But the roosts look so high up for such little birds! I'm afraid they will hurt themselves getting off them in the morning. They have a ladder, but have no idea what it's for. Am I just being a worry wart? Will they be ok on the roosts at night, or should I let them sleep on the floor for now until they get bigger?
