Looks like your roosts are low and it's a ladder so they can get up there easily. I just heard if the roost was too high for them then they won't, and some just choose not too. Preferring to sleep in a pile on the floor.
I am providing a low roost and going to see what they do.
So Sorry to hear this.
Just love the picture of the little chick with a helmet on!!!
For those of you who were trying to help me figure out if my unusually colored chick was male or female a few months. He turned out to be very male! His name is Lancelot.
Splash red-shouldered !?
The US-Silkie males have much female type in contrast to EU-Silkies !
Because you have the three colors in one pen, you don't always know what color a baby is when it hatches. It may be light blue or splash or dark blue or black. It's unusual for it to be some other color like partridge.
"Blue" is a black-pigment diluter (bl+/bl+ = no dilution, Bl/bl+ = 1 doses dilution, Bl/Bl = 2 doses dilution).
"Partridge" is a ground-color, a pattern, one of the possibilities on the E-locus.
It's perfectly possible to have 1 or 2 doses Blue on a Partridge-pattern, you become than Blue-Partridge or Splash-Partridge.
