    Mine are 4-inch side up. This is what I more commonly see advised, but I suppose it depends on your situation. For me, I have a hen with some toes curled and when she grips a perch, her curled toes poke right into the backs of her legs, so she needed a flat perch to prevent that from happening.

    I have crested but we're pretty far apart. I'll be at the State Fair and at Lebanon.

    I agree. Also the 4" side up helps to keep their feet warm in winter.

    Another one from Indiana, I don't have any chickens yet but need some so what is one of the best layers to get, and where to get them.

    Hi and welcome! If you are wanting chickens for eggs, red sex links. I dont have any but I have had tons of people tell me they are egg laying machienes. I think just about every hatchery has them and they usually have some at rural king and tsc in spring.
