Your Chickens - - Chickpix -

Your chick­ens are prob­a­bly in bed long be­fore you are now. They don’t see very well at night and like to be safely on their perches be­fore it gets dark. This gives you a chance to study their bed­time habits. Who al­ways goes into the hen­house first? Which chick­ens like to sit to­gether? You will no­tice that the bossi­est chick­ens sit on the high­est perch — that’s where they feel the safest. The more timid hens might even end up on the floor. There may be a few ar­gu­ments about who goes where, but then they will all set­tle down and go to sleep. Once it’s dark, they will be re­laxed and easy to han­dle if you need to, but don’t dis­turb them un­less it’s to­tally nec­es­sary. Just make sure that all the hen­house doors are tightly shut to keep them safe un­til the morn­ing. Good­night chick­ens. Sweet dreams…
