Hi all, I'm new to keeping chickens and trying to learn and do things the right way before I get my chicks. I am building a chicken tractor where the coop is 4'x4'x4'. I am reading conflicting info on roost placement in the coop. I am thinking I should do two roost spanning the 4 feet. My questions are:
1. at what height (from the coop floor) should the roosts be? Can chickens jump/fly to a higher roost in such a small space?
2. Should both roost be at different heights or is same height acceptable, if same height is ok, could reaching the height be a problem?
3. Is it acceptable to make the roost perpendicular rather than parallel? Benefit of one over the other?
4. Am I over thinking this?
