hahaha, many of us are like that.  When I brought some new girls home, I had to go out in the pouring rain and carry them around to the house and put them in.  

 

I don't know what type of chicken that is, but she is very pretty, you're right about that.

A good rule of thumb in a perfect world:

Make your ramp twice as long as the drop which would give you a 6/12 pitch and an angle of 22.5º.

"A 4x4 block attached to the end of your ramp to make a step up will do a lot to reduce the slope also."

Hope this helps,
