My friend and I recently embarked on a chicken adventure together and are currently getting our coops ready for when our chicks are ready to be outside full time. We have been talking about different materials to use for the roosts and he is set on 2x4's while I would really like to use natural branches. His main concern for using branches would be that they will be harder to clean the poo off of. Is this really a valid concern? If it is true is this a make or break problem? I would like to use as many natural materials as I can, but really the most important thing is making sure my chickens are happy and healthy. It would be great to hear what peoples thought are or what their experiences have been with either choice. Thanks!
