No, no, I'm not roosting. My girls are. I have two buff orpingtons and a black australorp. All are roughly 16 weeks old and have not had a roost available to them inside their coop until I added their nest boxes, a ladder and roost this past weekend. Last night, in order to teach them that they are supposed to roost at night and not sleep on the floor huddled together, I put one BO on the roost. I checked on her a bit later and she was still up there. (The roost is roughly a foot off the floor.) This morning I noticed that two girls were out in the run instead of three so I went to check. The BO I put up on the roost last night was still up there. I think she was stuck and couldn't figure out how to get down. I think there may be a couple reasons but I needed everyone's advice. 1. I picked the chicken who is low girl on the totem pole. She's not to bright and at the bottom of the pecking order. 2. They may not be used to the roost and don't know what to do? 3. The roost may be too high for them to jump off. 4. There many not be enough room for a landing. (18-20 inches between the roost and the coop wall & I got they're food hanging there as well.) 5. It's only the first night. Should I keep doing that (with the top girl) and hope the others follow suit? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. BTW, they do roost on a 2x4 that's about 4 inches of the ground in the run.
