1. What Time do your chickens go to bed? Ive been putting them to bed between 830 and 9 when it startes getting dark. Ive had to pick each one (all 43) by one and put them in the coop. I got tied up tonight and didnt get out there until 930. Every single one was in the coop. I guess they want to go to the coop later than Ive been putting them in. 2. Not using the perch. I see them sitting on the lower perches during the day. I usually check them before I goto sleep and they are never on the perches. I did however notice just a few minutes ago that tonight I was able to pick them up and they appeared asleep. No wing flapping no nothing. I went ahead and set a couple of the older ones on perches. 3. My pin is to small for the birdies. I came home this afternoon and half the flock were free ranging. Very funny to see chicks wondering arounf through grass and weeds taller than them. 4. My oldest bird is a hen. Maybe a few months old. I would assume shes to young to lay???? The last 2 days shes been building nest on the coop floor. Ive showed her the laying boxes and put her in them.
