    Hi, I'm not in cold climate but if you are, using them between rafters to close in from drafts but still allow some air movement between rafters up to ridge might work. they are designed to put between rafters down at soffit area so that batt insulation does not close off entire area between rafters all the way to underside of roof deck. I'd say give it a try, just be careful how close you roosts are to them so that your girls don't peck away at them. Good luck.
