    Thanks Brookliner, someone told me to use also strips of roofing shingles or that roofing paper with the grit on it. Since the sun doesnt hit the ramp, I think the strips of roofing shingles may work.. ..

    You might solve your ramp problem with another coat of paint only mix some sifted sand in with the paint put a good coat on and of course let it dry well before putting it back in the run. Nice coop. Good job.

    The style of this coup is saltbox, meaning the roof is 2 inches higher in the back than in the front. We are first time chicken owners so im sure we have made many mistakes so far. However, the girls were in their new hoem last nite and seemed very content. Only problem i see today is that the ramp is a bit slick for them because i painted it. Will have to get soemthing that is not slick for them. They all seem to be adjusting quite well to their new surroundings. We will be putting a better cover over the chicken run soon as funds allows it. With the recent storms we have been having lately here in tn, a lil tarp wont hold sqwat. At the moment there is 2 cattle panels along with some garden fencing secured under the tarp. I did order a better tarp before other options came my way. The girls are all doing fine so far . all i need yet is some river sand i think they call it. Im loving my chickens with my fingers crossed.
