Okay, I have read a million times that chickens are practically catatonic when they sleep. My 5 week old pullets seem to be very light sleepers. The minute I peek in on them they are up and ready to go. We just put them out in the coop this week, so I check on them before I go to bed around 11, they see me and they pop right up. Also, they hop onto the roosting bars and chill out there, but very rarely do I see them sleeping there. I guess I am just curious about when these habits develop. Any thoughts to share with the beginner?
