How many birds can fit on the large bar
Answer by ChewyJan 22, 2020
The amount of chickens this perch holds depends on what size your chickens are. Each breed of chicken will vary from breed to breed as well as different life stages. For some breeds, the Large perch will accommodate 4-6 chickens, other breeds it will accommodate 3-4 chickens.

Is this product water-resistant? For example, if set up outside the coop, or covered area, will it be damaged by light rain or snowfall? Thank you!
Answer by ChewyApr 15, 2022
The K&H Chicken Perch is water resistant. We recommend placing the Thermo-Chicken Perch under shelter at all times.

What’s the highest temperature and lowest? And can it be use for birds also? I have lots of birds cockatiel and parakeets in a large avery.. can i use it for them?
Answer by ChewyNov 07, 2019
The thermostat built into the cord turns the perch on ONLY when temperatures fall to the near freezing point or below. The perch will not operate when ambient air temperatures are above 35 degrees. In extreme cold the perch may feel cool to the touch, but the internal airspace of the perch will still be approximately 99 degrees. The shape and width of the Thermo-Chicken Perch are ergonomically designed specifically for chickens.

Would it be safe to wrap this in astroturf?
Answer by ChewyFeb 25, 2020
No materials should be applied to the heated section of the perch as this may cause a malfunction. The chicken’s feet should sit directly on the Thermo-Chicken Perch.

this one is a winner

I am partial to any items K&H, have several of them. Preferred by my chicklets and lovebirds [a much smaller inside version]. Presently, it is used by only two chicklets in a second coop. As always, i go with the birds' preferences. If they do not like something, they let me know too. It is not hard to figure out.

Thermo perch

I'm very happy with the thermo perch I bought for my chickens. It is warm to the touch when the temperature is below freezing and provides some warmth to the chickens feet on very cold days.

Absolutely works -- if you're a chicken!

I have four of these, all bought at different times, from Chewy and from another source. ALL of them work exactly as promised: when the temperature is below 35ºF, it comes on. I have to believe a lot of people either don't read how it works, or simply do not understand. YES THE BAR CAN FEEL COLD TO THE TOUCH EVEN WHEN IT IS ON -- especially if the ambient temperature is very cold. That does NOT MEAN IT IS NOT WORKING. As all of us learn in 6th grade science class, very cold air - especially if combined with any wind -- will wick the heat off of a steel surface faster than it can accumulate. If it were hot enough to still feel HOT in that state, it would also be hot enough to BURN YOUR CHICKENS' feet. However, the internal airspace of the perch is still a comfy 99ºF -- which will wick through into your chicken's feet when roosting. As explained in their directions, and in their ad --You can test this by wrapping a cloth around a portion of the perch in cold weather. After a few minutes, feel under the cloth to experience the warmth of the perch. This perch is fabulous, and a real comfort during snowy miserably cold winter days. The only things I would change is to add the ability to secure it easily higher up or extend the legs, and an on/off indicator so I could tell easily when it's powered on/off. Also, I wish the flat side of the perch faced up, as that is optimal for chicken's feet -- but really -- even with these small issues -- it's worth every penny.

To skinny for chickens feet

If the the perch was wider I think it would be more comfortable for a chicken

It does not work

I purchased this product and tossed the packaging. I stored it until it got cold and then plugged it in. It does not work. No way. No how. It just is as cold as cold can be. There is no on/off switch I can find and no light to indicate if it is on or off. My chickens would get very cold feet indeed if they roosted on this all night. Sorry Chewy. It just never turned on.

Burnt my chickens feet

Horrible. Gave my chickens feet third degree burn.

Cold feet no good

This didn't turn on. It seems the "smart technology" needs some brain food. I want an on/off switch so I can decide when to warm the girls feet. So disappointing.

Good for Chickens, better for coffee

Ok, so my chickens will use this on occasion. But more importantly, when I have had too much coffee and can't sleep I go out to the coop and cozy up with my chickens for a few hours. This keeps me warm in the cool winter nights until the caffeine gets out of my body. 15/16 it's a buy for sure.

Needs removable cord

My chickens don't seem to care for it. Aside from that, it is sturdy and well-built. My only other complaint is the cable needs to be removable so I can keep using it even when I'm not using the heated part.

My Girls Love This

This heated perch is a must-have for the cold winters. This is the second one I've purchased so that ALL my girls get the chance to perch. It warms up just enough to keep their feet warm, which makes them more comfortable. They prefer perching higher off the ground, and I would have given this 5 stars if it had longer legs to raise it up a bit higher. Otherwise, a great purchase.
