    The old one held more chickens, but it was a nightmare to clean! With this one, the chickens' poop falls in one spot, which is much easier. It's a ladder idea, leaning against the wall at such an angle so that the poop doesn't fall onto the chicken below. Here they are on their new roosts, if a bit squished:

    I noticed the little bantam next to the big BR roo too! [​IMG] My first thought was "what a neat set up!" second thought was "our flock fought over the top row with only 3 rows....won't work with my brats". My flock plays Gladiator over the roosts, so we had to adjust ours to all the be same height. I love your setup! I think my flock needs to get in gear so I can do the ladder roosts again. [​IMG]
