    so as of yesterday my 3 bourbon red hens are roosting on the top of the run with is fenced in i dont know if i should leave them there or try to get them to roost in the coop like they used to with the chickens. My one broad brested white hen is too heavy but she roost on a big rock inside the run so its not a big problem. Have any thoughts

    Depends on your preditor issue, if u dont have many than it may be ok. i have tons of coons so mine are only allowed to roost in the run or coop or up in trees. The trees is their idea not mine, but I have had some that would never roost in the run no matter what the weather was.
