I (we) will be getting our 12 new Buff Orpingtons in 13 days and counting..... (SO EXCITED) we will be first time owners! We're finishing up our coop this weekend. I am curious about what our ladies will be looking for in a roost. Should this be a dowel (round) shape or can we get a thicker piece of lumber for their feet to be flat on? I've seen a few pics or other roosts and have sort of seen this question asked, just not directly. Is there a better option? Please help. Time is certainly ticking. I appreciate and thank anyone in advance!!!! THANK YOU!
