DH is ready to make the roosts, he will be hinging the roosts to the wall so we can hook them to the ceiling when it is time to clean out the coop. But first I need to tell him how many inches or feet of roosting space do I need per bird? How thick should the roost be? I've got some metal bars that are 3/4 of an inch just lying around, would those work if I got my DH to make a ladder out of them? Thanks for an input.
