    I drilled (correction: my dad drilled) a 1 inch hole in two blocks of wood.
    Then I slid a 7/8 in dowel through so it rests. You can slide it out for easy cleaning.

    Good job! You'll have to show it to us again once your chicks are using it.

    That is the most adorable chick perch I've ever seen! (How does it not topple over? Or are you going to mount it against a wall?)

    Quote:That is exactly what my mom asked, so she tried to knock it over and the blocks just jiggled a tiny bit! It will also be against the side of the tank (the brooder) so it will be even harder to knock over!
