    My chickens are 11 months old and last night one was snuggled up in the nest with her head under her wing instead of up on the roost. Is something wrong?

    Not necessarily. May just have decided to sleep in the box. Is she acting different otherwise?

    x 3 maybe the nest box felt warmer or cozier to her ?

    Thank you for your answer, it has taken me a while to figure out how to reply. I appreciate the help. She is fine. I've never raised chickens myself only remember my grandmothers chickens. Of course, mine are more like my pets to me. All is fine, thank you so much.
