I was thinking that ladder is to much
post #12 of 17

Me too, it also  takes up floor space when it is probably crowded already.  I think in general chickens do not like a two story coop.  Also if the roosts are too high, heavy birds can get hurt making landings.

 

I think they would be much happier with a conventional coop.   Rule of thumb  4-5 sq.feet per bird in the coop (excluding roosts and nest boxes) and 10 sq.feet per bird in the outdoor run.

 

Are your birds confined there all day, or do you let them run around a bigger area.?  Chickens hate being crowded

Hello,

 My name is Steven. I have been raising Chickens and other birds for about 2 years now. I will say it is really fun and addictive. I really enjoy incubating eggs and watching them grow into beautiful birds.

 

I am currently looking to buy or trade for some Ancona Chickens if you have some for sale please let me know.

Well we had success last night the 2 Delawares went in themselves i am hoping the other will start to follow. I took the ladder and put a ramp in there and it must have worked for them two anyway.
