    They start out at night grouped together on the floor of the coop. But each morning when I go to let them out they are now up on the roosting posts.

    Here are my "big" girls roosting. Waiting for me to come open the coop.

    Aww, so cute. Love the sign on the wall too. I'm guessing they're still too young to obey the rules though - ? [​IMG]

    Quote:I am having much "discussion" with them about their bathroom habits!! I have only cleaned the roosts twice. So far they seem to miss the posts and it goes in the hay below! I hope they continue to do that!!

    They are very cute and young looking. So sweet.

    In the morning when I go outside to open the coop door, I hear "thump, thump THUMP" as they jump down from the roost and crowd the popdoor. It's very cute.

    I love barred rocks!! I have 2 that are 23 weeks, 4 that are 10 weeks, and I'm trying to hatch 13 right now...(So far 1 is out and 2 are zipping...)

    But, one of my 10 week olds, the only rooster, has some kind of deformity, a curvature in his neck, and a really crooked beak. But, as long as he's thriving, he has a home. His name is Igor...it really fits him!
