Propping up the roosting bar

chickens roosting Jan 17

The new roosting bar we put in the hen house kept giving way under the weight of hens. So, while chopping up branches this afternoon, I found a suitable Y-shaped one which could prop up the bar. It has worked rather well. There were 9 birds on the bar tonight when I locked up the hen house. I think we will install another similar roosting bar. The hens certainly appreciate them.
