I have a hen with 5 chicks. They are about 5.5 weeks old right now. Three look to be fully feathered, 1 isn't too far behind, and the fifth is not feathered at all and I'm pretty sure there's something wrong with her (she can't get into the next by herself and she's always getting lost, but I don't think she's blind, just dumb). Anyway, the mother wants to sleep with them in one of the nesting boxes, and that's where they've spent the past 3 weeks or so. I just help the little dumb chick up into the box and alls well (I love love love the little dumb one the most, LOL). They are with my 4 BO hens and 1 BO rooster, who are finally getting used to the roost. Anyway, tonight the mother hen had 2 of the chicks up on the roost and the other 3 were stumbling around. I needed to turn the light out, and it was already dark outside. I turned the light out and held a flashlight to see what would happen and the mother got back down from the roost, got into the next box and it was chaos for about 10 minutes until they settled. So, my question is, when will the babies roost? The hen acted like she wanted them up there roosting tonight, but its still frosting at night, and the coop isn't insulated yet. It stays relatively warm, but I wouldn't think it would be warm enough for them without their mama. Thanks, and if you made it that far, thanks even more!
