Another “innovation” which i cribbed from another farm I labored at is getting elements hang in the ceiling with a chain. I used to be using arms sticking from the wall previously, but there’s always a danger the wild birds will roost around the support, and crap in to the food or water. Hanging from the ceiling such as this serves a dual purpose: you steer clear of the “crap-in-water” problem, and you may always hitch the hanging element up greater temporarily if you want to operate in the area. Plus I acquired to purchase an enjoyable hook along with a chain, that we loved. Yes, I’m a hardware weirdo.
I previously had this egalitarian ideal about chickens. When I gave them enough space, they’d all roost together on a single perch. I’ve literally never witnessed this happen. In several six, a minumum of one will invariably go roost elsewhere (as with the nesting box, which may be ‘crappy’ simply because they poop when they sleep and sully it). So, I’m accommodating rather from jump for that hierarchies/variations in bird groups and allow them to have a few places available at different heights. I’ve found that stacking roost above roost doesn’t work great, because nobody desires to sleep directly underneath several chickens who are likely to poop in it through the night lengthy. Yes, you are able to offset them, however i don’t genuinely have space to experience with this here, which works best for me.
Putting it all together
Here’s a go with all the components together — er, mostly together. Still missing chicken-wire in upper panels. After using this, I finished up moving the waterer to become more centered backward and forward perches.
