Hi My wife and I just got three chickens, white leghorn crossed with Australopes. We have an awesome house (at least we think so), and have two roosting perches, one indoors and another outdoors. My question is, what really is the point of getting your chickens to roost at night? We read on website things like "If your chickens are not roosting then go outside and place them on their roosting perch", but if ours don't do this by themselves, why do we have to make them? There seems to be alot to be read about that implies its important, but why would it be? Do you need to keep them from sleeping in the laying box?, as an precautionary anti-broody technique? Cheers!!!
