Homemade roosting bars with pics

Recommended Posts

Today I made a set of roosting bars as mine are looking a bit tatty now ans we used different size wood to the stuff that the eglu roost bars are made from. It will be the test tomorrow to see if they fit.


I will post up a pic tomorrow-If I remember!


Instead of having 6 bars on each section I changed it to four as we're using wood that's 1 and 1/2 inches wide. I'll show you what I mean when I take a piccie.

Wow! :lol:


What "dimension" of wood did you use Liz?


They look very professional.


I used treated timber from Wickes which was 1 & 1/2 inches by 3/4 of an inch


They look great, what do your chickens think?

Very Happy


They seem to be getting on ok with them-they're used to larger perches as that's what their wooden coop had!

Well done Liz :D


My mark 2 roosting bars are falling apart, they are more flimsily :lol: made than the roosting bars for my mark 1.


I did think about buying a second set but the postage to get them up here doubles the price :?


I'm going to have a go at making a set myself 8)
