    I read on here some were someone made there root out of 2x4's. layed flat so the birds can roost on the 4'' side.
    So I changed mine out and put in the new 2x4's. And it is working out really well they sit up there and can cover there feet with there breast feathers to keep there toes from getting frost bit.
    If you are fighting the cold with your birds you might want to try this.

    Good post . Always good to share with others who have not thought of that. It is the way to go for northern climes. [​IMG]
