    We just used a scrap piece of plywood that we found in the barn and nailed some scrap pieces of wood so they don't slide down the ramp.

    Honestly, I just have a treated 2x8 that is 6 ft long.... It goes up to two feet above the ground..... And that's all it is, a 2x8.... They seem to like it just fine and have no stability issues.... But is a very small grade anyway...

    Most people just do a ramp with cleats, but anything that lets them get inside is fine, from cinderblocks to staircases.

    I made a ramp using hardware cloth to see if it would be easier to keep clean. It is much easier to clean. The chickens didn't like it at first, but took to it after a few days.

    Try laying down a thin layer of hay when the chicken r gettin used to it. They will eventually scratch it all away an then be conforatble walking on it

    Lol.... They are used to it now. It only took a few days til they realized that they could walk on it.
