    Quote:Stick one in now . I put a roost in in the brooder right away, either they use or they dont. Usually by a week or two they are all roosting.

    I'm a newbie but i think i read a post here saying at about 2 weeks but keep it low so they won't get hurt when they fall off.

    I started mine at only one inch high and worked them up slowly later.​
