I ripped a board like the board on the left in the top picture into 4 pieces to build this perch. It’s not perfect and was a big learning process! (Predrilling holes really does save time and is so much more accurate with placement.) The chicks (big chicks now) like it and up to 4 of them have sat on it at once in the brooder! It hasn’t ever tipped over which was my number 1 concern. It definitely seems to have helped them be happier. The only thing is they don’t sleep on it, but the 5 of them pile next to and on top of each other on one side. Oh well, once they move out to the coop maybe they’ll figure out roosting at night. I feel like maybe the roost in the coop needs to be a little wider though. Both with more space lengthwise and across the bar itself. I built something and it works! Don’t know if I have skills enough to build a coop but I am going to try!
