Completing the coop with roosting bars

We have the cutest coop that sits under the extended overhang of the new shed.  Very pleased with the look and design... except it did not come with any roosting bars.

Since I get to put in whatever I want now :)  What do chickens like best?  We're in a northern climate and I will have to add some form of supplimental heat.  It was suggested nothing more than 2x4 on side that way they can keep their feet warm.  How high should each hop be and how far apart should they be?

We love chickens! Here you'll find lively discussions on how to raise these fun, feathered fowl. We've got great posts to help first-timers get started, plus daily discussions to keep more experienced hands learning (or showing off!)
