We put a new roost in and took down the ladder roosts, they took to much floor space and since putting the new roost up the birds have the whole floor to play on. Problem is we have a bird with crooked toes and she could not get up onto the roost, or hold on and I was afraid she would fall off one night and harm her self sooooo... We carpeted the roost, and thought this would also keep there feet very comfortable in winter. We went by a carpet store today on a whim and there out side was a nice new piece of flat carpeting sitting by the dumpster. We took it home, put it on the roost and the girls love it! We then put a bigger board under neath for the poop board. ( will post pictures tomorrow as it's after midnight and I forgot lol. We plan to re-carpet as it gets dirty. I'm thinking this will keep there feet much warmer in the winter and more comfortable. Or am I nuts and it's a stupid idea?
