A perch for the babes

Last night when I went to check on the babies lots of them were tightrope walking along the top edge of the brooder so I decided it was time to make them a proper perch. I found a large branch and cut it into similar lengths that I could use to create a ladder. I scrounged up a couple pieces of wood in the workshop to screw them to, and wah-lah.... a perch!  At first they were scared of it - they are chickens after all - but by this morning they were fluttering up onto the branches and hanging out there.
