My six week old isa browns have learned how to put themselves up for the night, but I have wondered at what time they do and who is first. I went outside at about 845 and peered over the fence at them so they couldn't see me. At 9 pm on the dot, the little runt led them marching into their house, chirping and trilling. It was very cute!

What are some funny things you have observed when spying on your flock?

Spying on my flock...I don't think there has been a time when I could see them but they couldn't see me, unless it was through the windows in my house. Sometimes I look out the window and see them all sunbathing in a group.

Observing the RoostTimeRumble is fascinating.
Definitely! I wasn't spying on them--they could see me--but yesterday I saw a bit of RoostTimeRumble.
Sussex, who is not very high in the pecking order, had taken the "best spot" on the roosting bar, and Dominique (highest in the pecking order) was not very happy about it. Dominique started off by making her high-pitched noises, but when that tactic didn't amount to anything, she resorted to something far more effective--pecking Sussex's and trying to push her off the roost. This method, of course, was successful. Dominique always sleeps on the far left (their far right), with Orloff next to her.
