Hey, just in case anyone needs a clever idea for a roost for their little ones (not for full grown hens, or probably even mature pullets) but for my 4 week olds, it will do. I know my girls were roosting at about 1 week old, the day I got them and placed each of them on the roost to show them, they were doing it. We just moved them from their guinea pig cage to a "halfway house" outside. Their small PVC pipe roost wouldn't work out in the halfway house, so while shopping at thrift stores for ideas, I cam across paper towel HOLDERS for roosts! The trick is to find ones that have a flat back to them, so all you have to do is set them on the coop floor and voila! Sturdy, perfect sizes (you can even find different sizes), round for easy grasping, easy to take out, and not a wallet robber! Only $5 dollars for two of them for me at ARC thift stores. You can usually always find these at your local thrift store/goodwill/garage sale! I may not be the first to do this, but I'm sure it'll help someone out there!
