    My husband is building me a larger chicken coop and he was asking me if there is a certain diameter for the roosting rods in the coop. Do they prefer a certain size or can they make do with just about anything? TYVM! [​IMG]

    It gets cold here in the winters, so we use 2x4's for roosts and use the 4" side as the flat surface so they can roost covering their feet for warmth.
