    When I first got my hen at a month old, she would always roost but lately (now six months old and starting to lay) she won't even touch the roosting stick. Is there something I should be worried about?

    Yes.. She has a deep inner hatred for her father.. No.. JK..

    Mine roosted GREAT starting about 5 weeks to about 13 weeks.. I went and took the sides off their coop one day, designed a really nice roost system made of 2X2's that was 3 times as big as their old one...

    That was about 3 weeks ago... They are still scared of it. They will walk past it, they will walk under it, but to touch it.. They must feel it will catch them on fire or something. Dunno..
    Just those crazy chickens.
