    Nice looking chickens but your pen is way too small.Chickens need a lot of room.Too small of an enclosure makes chickens sick and dirty.They need room to run and flap their wings.They need clean areas to dirt bathe and lay in the sun.They need space just like people!!!

    Chickens need a lot of room,the more there is the better.Have you thought of putting perches up in the pen for the chickens to jump on and learn to roost.In my grow out pen I put tree branches up and milk crates to sit on so they can get off the ground.They love it!!!I usually start them off w/ perches in the brooder,they start jumping up on them at 2-3 weeks old.Start them off low and raise the perches as they grow.It's fun to watch them figure it out but they do w/o help from me.

    I keep roosting poles in the house when the hens are still brooding and after I let one hen out with chicks when they were 4, weeks old the climbed up a 20 foot branch still connected to the tree then jumped 2 ft on to another I know what I'm doing thankyou for what you said but I already knew that
