Chickens LOVE to roost. Roosting is just sitting on something higher for long periods of time. We have two poles placed in the coop, one a littler lower to the ground and one a lot higher from the ground. "Bird" loves to jump up on the higher one when she gets to be in the coop. Since she isn't in there very often she roosts on top of the fenced in part of the chicken coop. They roost when they sleep too.
