I have 8 young showgirls and 2 silkies. They don't roost. They don't fly up to things. The farthest off the ground I've seen one get so far is the top of a basket that is in their pen. They like to play "queen/king" of the mountain. And that is only about 12 inches high. I'm happy with ground birds. That just means that I don't need to add a top to their playpen or my neighbor's fence-line. Has anyone else noticed a proclivity for staying on the ground in silkies or showgirls? Curiosity is killin' me!
