    I've been asking my hubby for a little over a week to make my chicks a roost for in their brooder. I started thinking how hard could it be?! So I went out into the garage and 20 mins later I had made this. Nothing fancy but it is my first time using an electric saw, drill and sander. Hubby won't like I did it with him not being home but tough, I got tired of waiting! LOL Astrid was the first to try it out. [​IMG]

    Thanks! I shocked myself, I guess. It's very sturdy, won't fall over and I made sure the edges were all sanded so they don't hurt themselves. Now I want to build something bigger... [​IMG]

    I have found all my chickens LOVE when you use a tree limb as the roost =] I guess its more natural...

    Problem is where I live there are very few trees to get limbs from. There are mostly palm trees. I would love to be able to put tree limbs in their run once we build that.

    Thanks to an ice storm last winter, we have a bumper crop of branches...and snapped saplings...at our place! Now if we can get a single dry day to gather them! Welcome to the Great Northwet, oh, I mean Northwest. Wettest March on record, and for us, that's saying something!
