Our young flock integration is now successful. The 4 girls/1 boy youngsters all now get along fine with the 11 older girls. The way our chicken house is set up, there is an enclosed building with a door to an outside run that is roofed and surrounded with chain link. The girls all now go inside at night to roost. At first the youngsters roosted on a perch in the outside section, and I would move them inside after dark (roo goes into the garage for neighbor reasons). One by one they all finally started roosting inside, however Romeo (yeah, I know) still goes to sleep on the outside perch (with only the occasional companion). It could be that he's never really slept inside, since he gets moved to the garage after dark, but I also wonder if his instinct might be to roost outside as a guard. Has anyone ever had a roo insist on roosting outside? Thanks!
