    So I won this at a dog show raffle ( i put 1 ticket in lol) but relized that I have no use for a dvd rack... hmmmmm [​IMG]
    And then......
    I thought, why not use it as a roost in the new coop.

    Would this work for an all bantam flock? Thanks!

    I'm a newbie, so I can't advise you, but I hope you can make it work. Don't you love re-purposing things? Good luck.

    I just picked one of those up in junk clean up,(taller then that one)
    thinking I could use it for my chickens.....
    Didn't know what it was,
    thought it was a quilt rack or something.

    Yes, and if the roost is too tilted for them, just put some wooden shims under the base of it on one side and tack on to make it level for them!

    Might work if you can figure out a way to attach or anchor it to the floor or wall.

    I was planning on screwing it to the floor and wall somehow. Any suggestions on the angle, or should it be just mounted as it stands?
