    I know this one....I saw a sign that said: "I dream of a better world, where chickens can cross the road without having their motives questioned"

    How do chickens prefer their roosts? High? Or low?

    But, be sure to give them a way to get up to the "high" roosts - I put a rafter bar across my coop near the roof (when I added my solar battery) and they kept trying to fly up there and knocking each other off/falling to the ground. So I made a "ladder" type roost with three levels, now they hop onto the first, to get to the second, and now they all squeeze onto the top!!
