A tiny perch for the chickens

A tiny perch for the chicks.

Josh noticed the chicks liked to perch on his finger when he picks them up so he made them a tiny perch for their home.  He built a frame from wood he had sitting around in the workshop then added tiny branches from the yard for them to sit on.  At first they were scared of it, but it only took one brave little chicken to try it out then they were all anxious to get on.  It took about a day for one Rhode Island Red to figure out how to get to the top rung.  They'll be flying around in no time!
