Finally got my branches for my walk in run. All in place but so far chickens not intrested in going on them.i dont think they are to high as they get on top of my black bin ok, ive put one lower so they can jump from branch to branch.will just wait and see what happens. Is it ok if the branches are quite large??? Or do they have to be small enough to get there claws round??

We use branches about 50mm diameter for the large fowl and about 30mm for the bantams Eve. But they don't seem particularly bothered about what they land on as long as they can get their front claws over an edge. They don't seem to use the back claw much for gripping, unless the perch is very small and they feel unstable.
