Hi all, just a quick question about roost height in the coop. My son and I are adapting an old barn shed into a hen coop. The shed measures 15' X 9' with a headroom of approx 7' 6". It has a corrugated steel roof and outside wall while the back and inner wall are oak post and 4" X 2". Thanks to some of the advice I have recieved on this forum I have incorporated the adaptation to include a skylight and glazed panel door to allow light in.. I am confused as to how high I should place the roosts. First I read that many birds prefer to get as high as possible so this afternoon we fitted two roosts, one at around 6' and the other at 5' with a third to follow at around the 2' 6" mark. Now I am reading that damage to the birds feet might occur when they jump down. The roosts are installed ramp fashion to prevent " poop bombing" but i'm concerned about the birds hurting themselves. Your sagacity and experience would be most welcome before we get to far along with the project. Thankyou all. Chris & Nicholas.
