All my chickens will get up on the sticks I've set for them to perch on except my silkies. Is this because they have 5 toes and it's awkward or uncomfortable or something? Does anyone have silkies that will perch on sticks? I've tried setting them in the sticks to show them but they rock back and forth like they have bad balance and fall off pretty quickly. Sometimes it worries me because all the other birds will roost for the night on the perches while the silkies sleep in the dirt or leaning up against the pen wall, even though I have a box for them to sleep in they don't use it. Im afraid a raccoon or something will reach through the wire and hurt them or some ants or a snake will get them while they sleep. I try very hard to keep things predator proof and to keep bugs out of the cage. I've put them in the box several times at night and thought they would get the hang of it but I still wake up in the morning to find them sleeping outside of it. Mainly this perching thing has me thrown for a loop. I dont get why the silkies are the only ones who don't. Any input please?
