I am new to the forum. We just got 10 chickens that are about 5 weeks old. For our coop we converted one horse stall of our barn and instead of cutting a whole in the side of the barn we are hoping to use a window as the exit and entrance point. The window is 6 feet high, so we would make a very gradual ramp on both inside and outside.
Does this sound like something the chickens would learn to use? We would also be free ranging them some, so they wouldn't have to use it all the time.
If that doesn't work then we will cut a whole about six inches off the ground.
