Heated Roost?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I was wondering if anyone has made a heated roost for their chickens. Not a heated coop, just the roost...  I was looking at bird products for parrots and such, and they have heated perches. SO, obviously I thought about roosts...

At the very least, wipe the poop off your feet before getting in the car.

Nah, chickens take care of heating their feet the old fashioned way.  When a chicken jumps up on a roost - and it's an appropriate roost - they don't grasp with their feet all night.  They grasp just long enough to steady themselves, then release their grasp and rest on their keel bone, covering their feet in the process and keeping them toasty warm. 

 

By appropriate roost I mean a flat board - a 2 x 4 with the "4 side" up; which make roosting easier for the chicken and better for their feet in the long run.

Yeah, I have them between 4 and 10 inches wide. The birds then pick their favorite. Just was wondering if anyone did it..
