My chickens free range in the late afternoon and they will take a break and fly up and rest on the new roost. I had several wild grapevines growing and it was either cut them down or use them to my best advantage. So I came up with this idea. The roost sits next to a giant tree and now provides a nice shady location for my chickens to take a break in the afternoon. I wrapped the vines around the branches so they will grow more uniformly and will make it easier for me to keep pruned.
I cut two branches 6 foot tall and the shorter branches are 4 foot. I then layed them all on the ground and used screws to secure them all together. It makes a very strong support.
