    Our coop is 99.5% done. I moved the ladies in last weekend. We have nesting boxes but no roosts and now they are all sleeping/roosting in the nesting boxes and making quite the mess.
    So we are out to the workshop this week to build some roosts.
    I would love to see some pictures of your set ups.
    FYI:
    I have 14 chickens and my coop is 11x7x5
    Thanks

    This L-shaped corner roost has dropping boards that slide out for easy cleaning.

    We did the poop board as well, used a piece of 3/4" melamine since it has a smoothe surface. Seems like the cleaner way to go.

    I now have another bar at the same height as the highest one, parallel to it. I didn't figure in just how much space they each wanted so they could roost as closely as possible to the rooster. He's popular.

    Small space for six chickens. Poop boards pull out to clean (split in two for space issues).
