Roost bars

Which is better for the chickens, square or round roosting bar?
post #2 of 4
We have a 2 x 4, wide side up for the roost. There was a smaller, rounded perch outside the nesting boxes, they wouldn't go in until we switched it out for a wider, flat perch (1 x 4)

Then again lots of Bycer's have round roost or tree limbs.

 

THE DEBATE CONTINUES.

Check out this link leads to a Video interview on me and my grand daughter done by a local TV Station on our WHITE HOMING PIGEON loft:

I have both in my coop and half prefer round and the other half prefer the 2by4. I heard that a round perch is better so they can grip onto it. I would just put In a square one to be safe.

Hope this helped and if you have anymore questions, let me know!smile.png
The key to a happy flock is to be there for them. You have to do your job so they can do theirs. Your coop layout is also important. It doesn't have to be fancy just functional.http://www.backyardchickens.com/a/just-a-chicken-coop Is an example of it.
