I have a set of those that I have not used in years but will not get rid of them for some reason and you might have a reason for me to keep them and put them to use. I really like what you did with the nest boxes, do you think they will shut the curtains when they start laying? :idunno  It has been entertaining and informative following the thread and I thank you for that.   Happy Easter.

Thanks for your kind comments.  Those ramp things were just there temporarily so my husband to back the tractor up to the door and dump the loam in to fill in the run.  We have since removed them and planted grass on the outside.  Today I built a little ladder from the floor of the coop up to the poop board/roosts.  All my chicks can fly easily up to roost except my little buff cochin that was sick.  She was being left out and peeping franticly so I built a little ladder for her which I will remove once she can fly up by herself.  See....never really done.:rolleyes::rolleyes:

Here is a quick video of my chicks enjoying the run.  They just love getting out of the coop and foraging around the run.  I put leaves, logs and dirt etc from the woods and they love to pick through it for worms and bugs etc.  You can see the buff cochin is doing awesome and keeping right up with the others.  She is now starting to grow too.
