Ha. I feel that. I now preface any visit to our back patio with, “You night not believe it, but I clean out here twice a day.”Oh yes, mine love to perch on anything up high. I think they're favorite is any place place that's just beyond my reach, or any spot where I might sit in the future. (They love to leave me lots of poop to accidentally sit in.) Lol
Sooooooooo I don't want to be debbie downer... but I got to tell you I have never had tree-roosting birds that made it very long. You may want to try and break them of the habit before they aren't around anymore. Chickens can't see in the dark, they will literally just sit there (think about how easy it is to grab them at night to look at them vs the day).
Thank you for noting that. It's helpful for future reference. Fortunately, for now, at least, our flock very dutifully climbs into their repurposed pigeon loft every night, right at sunset! They just spend their days in the trees and stuff. At night, they get a very secure flight deck! (pictured below, before I've shut the door for the night) View attachment 1879375
Curious, do they use doors above the flight deck?
