Hoping you can help. Am just in the final stages of building my coop. The position of my nesting box is at floor height (so my children can access the nesting box from outside. I have a 6' ledge that the birds will need to hop over before entering.
With reference to my picture, do you think that its ok to place the roosts (red) in the position as indicated? I'll build a poop board (yellow) below and then the chickens will need to walk under in order to enter the nesting box. Should be about 18" clearance.
I'm unable to place the roosts in the opposite end as that is where I enter the coop from.
Thanks for all your help in advance.
