    I have 6 week old chicks - a nice big coop with 2 nice roosts - what do they do - roost every where else - in the windows, shelves - also on the roosts - I think they like to look out the windows! Will this continue to be the case, or do you think they'll settle on the roosts - I had no idea they could poop in as many places!!

    Mine were sitting in the windows too so i put chicken wire over the bottom part. and it stopped them from doing it. and this way i can still open and close the windows.
