Hi, I am a brand new member and a brand new chicken owner and loving it. I have looked but cannot find the answer to this question so please forgive me if it has already been answered. When do chickens start using the roost? We got our 3 chickens (the Princesses) on Oct. 24th at 6 weeks of age. They seem to love their coop and run but aren't using the roost bar yet. It is positioned catty corner on one side of the coop with the nesting boxes on the other side. The roost is about 1" in diameter and about 27" off the floor. Right now the three of them hunker down in one corner of the coop for the night. Thanks so much.
