My Henrietta cant make it up the ramp!!!

I have a rather large Leghorn who is my sweetest Chicken ever. However I have moved my lot and made new and updated living arrangements for my Chick's.

My Americaunas can easily get in and out they are a smaller breed with longer legs. My Leghorn is very wide and waddled   any suggestions to upgrades on my ramps? or are my americunas keeping her out?  I wanted to widen the door and make a wider ramp. But I thought I'd ask.  She is having to lay eggs in the dirt.....:/

Possibly making the ramp less slated might help.

Add more slats on the ramp for traction. Those you have don't provide enough gripping power for a rotund hen who's insecure about the ramp in the first place.

I will give it a shot. I have straightend up the ramp as well so there is not any turns needed
