What type of roost bars do chickens need?

This is one of those questions about chickens where if you read 5 different books about chickens (which I have) you will get 5 different answers. One book will tell you that the roost bar has to be perfectly round, where another says it has to be a flat board. The other books fall somewhere in the middle. We have found that using a finished 2″x2″ (which is actually a 1-1/2″ x 1-1/2″ with slightly rounded corners) work great. We don’t want to criticize any other roosting bar option. We feel, like most things when it comes to having chickens, if it is working well for you that you must be doing it right and stick with it.
