    I have 13 15-16 weeks olds and 35 5 weeks olds I have enough room for everyone and have made roost for all of them but there is one roost that none of them use so the chicks mainly fight over the other ones that the big gals don't use. I have a couple of the big gals on it in the middle of the day but they don't seem to stay there should I remove this one and build another in a differant spot or will they start to use it as they set thier sleeping spots? some of the chicks are sleepping on the floor so I 'm not sure what to do.
