    Can someone direct to a picture or post pictures of their roosts? My babies are 5 weeks old and I know they like the tree branch I put in their pen, but I'm not sure if that's good enough for when they get big. Help! I want to do right by them.

    When they were in the brooder I just put some small logs for them to just kinda sit on. In the coop and run - here r some pics:

    Not a very good pic of the roost, but we just slid some different length 1x2's thru the fencing in the corners.

    [​IMG] Tina Turner is a white crested black polish chickie!! LOL Thanks. Just make sure u stagger the lengths so that if someone is on the top roost doesn't poop down all over everyone else! [​IMG]

    That's a beautiful hen house for sure. Thanks, mine is much smaller, but it helps me to see what I could be doing.

    Quote:i like how your roosts arent square pieces of wood i have a large branch well more like a log suspended off of two chains so that it swings like a realt tree would they love it
