I have 6 8wk old girls, who moved out to their coop 3wks ago. We put a stick in the brooder with them right up from day one, and a roost in the coop, but so far they have yet to use the roost. They do however roost on all sorts of other things in the yard (chairs, fence tops, rain barrell etc.) So every night at bedtime instead of going on the roost, they huddle into the corner of the coop and make a big "chicken pile". They are quite vocal about the whole thing. I wish IL had a video bc it's pretty funny watching them squirm all over the place and try to get into the best place in the pile. Maybe they're cold, it's been 50-60 here in new england these past couple of weeks. I try putting them on the roost at night, and they fly right back over to the corner. Any ideas?
