This is our first coop. We used tree branches for roosting bars. Any thoughts/advice on the placement?

Thank you!!

Being practical, the most usable one is the one in center - if you can get another one like that and replace the two in the back, that would be ideal. The two in back as is could possibly hold 2-3 birds? The very curved one in front being propped up is very close to the wall and probably going to be difficult for adult birds to use.

Yes, center one is best
How long is it..and how many birds do you have??
They're gonna be scared they might fall thru the huge hole in the floor. :gig
What is the platform on the far side?
4 hens right now. Huge hole is temporary so I can work in the coop :)

I like them. Natural branches are great. The branch on the far left might not get used much. I did mine like you did, with several in the corners. I find the high ranking hens like the corner ones where they can be by themselves or with their best friend. The lower ranking ones and the younger birds seem to like the lower branches/roosts.
