Build a better perch - your thoughts? I would like to build my girls a new perch. In the past I have used a recycled closet rod and a natural tree branch. The tree branch has worked the best for me so far. Do you think I should use another branch, or try some other material? I only have four girls, so this is a small project, but it will mean a lot to them. I have seen pvc used, but this seems a bit slippery. I have read that rounded 2x4 work, do they sit on the 4 side or the 2? What materials have you used successfully in your roosts?
