    I read somewhere that someone used a wooden pallet for a roost. Can anyone help me with this? I've got three Pallets just laying useless in the barn. I haven't yet built my roosts in the coop.

    Do they just cut the pallet apart and use the wood for roosts or did they cut it in sections and use it in some form for roosts? Has anyone done this?

    I have a pallet as a roost on the outside of my coop in run. It is just laying up against the the garage. When it is hot or the girls want a getaway from the roos they sit there.

    Oh, I love to use pallets.

    I just propped one against the wall at an angle like a ladder. When they were babies, they would pick a slat and roost all night. As they got older, they used it as a ladder to get up to a higher roost.

    Pallets are very handy!

    Pallets are great. I use them under my roost as a dropping board. Very easy to clean when that time of the year comes.
