I'm still at the design stage of the coop, and I've run across a question...I've looked at many coops on BYC and notice that the tops of some inside nest boxes have a steeper angle than others. What would be the optimum angle to keep hens off? I'm guessing the steeper, the better...am I wrong?

I would suggest whatever angle is produced by the width of plywood scraps you happen to have lying around

Honestly. As long as it is steeper than 35-40 degrees, nobody's going to perch on it for long, so go with whatever's most convenient to build

Good luck, have fun,
