We are battling scale leg mites and would love to get rid of wood perches. Wooden perched make such good hiding spots for leg mites and they do gather poop. Hubby thought of pvc pipe but We decided too slippery and round shape is not the best for perching. It is however cheap. Wondering about pvc deck rails, looked expensive when I checked online. Does anyone use pvc or any other non wood material for posts. We have little bantams, they have mainly 2x4's right now.
