No, they don't, but it's probably better for the chicken. If they're a little bit off, I'm sure it's fine.

It has a slight grade to it. It's not like this /. Just the barn I've converted has the cross support beams at different levels on each side. So it'd be a slight grade to every single roost unless I go out and do something magical.

That will be fine. I find they always squabble at roost time even if the roosts are all level. They all want the best spot!

This sounds like a stupid question, but, In nature, would a chicken roost in a tree? What tree is level?

I wish I had a picture of these trees we saw at a nursery recently. They were apple trees and they'd been formed to grow up like a ladder, perfectly straight branches. ;)
