Birds roosting on brooder

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
My brooder is built into our coop and the adult birds are using it as a roosting spot. Any suggestions on how to get them to stop?

The best way to prevent it is to create a 45 degree angle to any "topper" which prevents them being able to get a grip -- it may take a little thinking depending on the setup of your coop and brooder.

Where are we going, and why are we in this hand basket?

What does the top of yours look like? The top of my brooder is used as a droppings board.

A photo might really help.

When you come to a fork in the road, take it.
