Just about ready to start building the roosts and nest boxes. I had read that 2x4s were good because they forced the chickens to lay their feet flat, thus helping them retain heat in the winter. Don't remember where I read that. On the other hand, I've read (and guessed) that chickens just plain ole prefer dowells. Which is best? Which do the chickens seem to prefer? Pictures of your roosting space would also be great. I have 1 bantie at the moment and am guessing she'll need something smaller? How would I position her special space if I don't know the pecking order?! Also, let me know if I have this right: 18" both from the ground and ceiling, 12"from the wall, and 12" between roosts? Am I remembering that correctly? Help! Oh, I am so ready for this coop to be finished!!
