Okay, as some of you have read already, I have been planning to use 2 x 4's for my roost. However, I was given an abundance of 2 x 6's yesterday. Since I have no way of safely ripping them down the middle, I now plan to use the 2 x 6's for the roost. Since the Black Australorps, Buff Orpingtons, and Barred Rocks are fairly large birds, it seems this would be better, in that it gives them more room for their feet. Would there be any drawbacks that I should know about?
