Hello all!
I built a lovely coop for my 6 week old chicken’s and they are sleeping on the floor!!
I showed them the roost and I have seen them use it during the day but at night they all huddle in a corner and sleep on shavings.
Is this normal at 6 weeks?

Pretty normal at 6 weeks. If you want to train them to use the roost you can manually move them up there when it's pretty much dark, or if you'd rather let them figure it out on their own, just leave them to their own devices and they'll roost when ready.

Thank you! I will let them figure it out. I just wanted to make sure I had done everything they needed.
