    I have 3 Is a browns and 3 silkies. None of them ever go to roost. They are all about 5 months old. I have put them on the roost and they just keep jumping off. I have a few perches in the run and they will jump up there but it's only to come see me. If I walk away they jump down. Should I keep putting them up there?

    My chickens never liked roosts. I wouldn't stress about them using it or not. If they don't want to, they don't want to. When they are a bit older they may learn to like it, but they should be able to figure it out. :)
