    This is the question! My chickens huddle up in the corner at night..only some roost. They are about 6 weeks or more. Should I put them on their roost or let them sleep in the corner? They used to sleep on their bedding under the light, but now that the light is off they sleep in the corner. What do you all think?

    Since they are young and some are roosting, I would just let them be for now, and see if the rest will in time. I would probably put them on the roost each night if they were nearer laying age.
