Adding better roost options

We spent some time today re-organizing the roost and nest box placements in the chicken coop.

A fourth roosting location is in the corner you don't see in the picture, which might be high enough for our rooster to finally feel like he's captain of the coop.

I'll check in on them a bit after their bedtime tonight to see who ended up roosting on the top spot.

Those look like great perches! I might be getting chickens this spring (finally!) and this makes me even more excited (if that were really possible).

The chickens agree with you. They seem to love their new jungle-gym coop. :-)

I hope you get chickens soon! We always recommend that homesteaders get chickens ASAP because they're really one of the easiest parts of the farm, and mesh so well with the garden and our own waste cycle.
