    I need to add more roosting space to my coop, but I don't have much room. I keep seeing ladder roost and the look like they would work great but it looks like they would end up pooping on the birds below them? how does this work?

    Is this what you mean when you say ladder roost or not?

    I think the idea behind the ladder roost is that it provides a nice variety of levels for different birds as well a lots of roost in a small area. Since the ladder boards are spaced apart they should avoid the poop on each other... I hope mine is far enough apart lol. Mine is actually hinged off the ceiling joist so I can lift it up for cleaning if needed.
