Roosting Poles? - Page 4

I'm subscribing because I have the exact same questions you do. I also have 2"x2"'s in there now with 7 week olds. They obviously aren't roosting yet, but they do like to hang out on them sometimes. After reading this thread I'm thinking about swapping them out for 2" x 4"s. I also have 1 higher than the other. Should they be the same height??
Mom of 3 boys, 2 dogs (Missy and Sassy), 1 cat (Oreo), 1 horse (Belle), 4 EE's (Bones, Chicken Little, Saphira, Smokey), 3 White Leghorns (Foggy, Pearl, Betty) and 3 Buff Orpingtons (Snuffles, FluffyButt, Honey)
I hung one from the rafters with galvanized pipe hangers (I think they were from the plumbing section?). The other has a couple pieces of scrap 2x2 screwed to the wall in a V and the roost just drops into the V -- held in place by gravity.
