I thought ya'll would appreciate this. I made a simple roost for my silkie chicks this past weekend, and posted on my blog the "how to" which is more funny than useful. With pictures! Some of them with chickens in them. Except not really. And it's only the first half of the how-to, with the useful bits coming available on Friday. And actual pictures of chicks on Friday too. Still, if you've ever thought about providing your baby chickens with a cute little perch for them to ignore, and I haven't managed to talk you out of it, you must read this! (Or not). How to Build a Chick Perch in About 15 Minutes And in case you need a reason to build a chick perch, or just want another way to waste some time, or like cute pics of silkies (this is exactly the same link I posted earlier with pics of my silkies, jst fyi): Why You Need a Chick Perch Also, I would love to hear what sorts of toys and equipment you build for your chicks's entertainment.
