Hi - I'm brand new at this!! Looking for some advice. https://www.wayfair.com/pet/pdp/inn...y-chicken-coop-with-chicken-run-inpe1050.html I just bought this brand new from someone who was reselling it so I got it very inexpensively from them. I have 4 pullets that are about 18 weeks old now, and have had them for a full week. I have it parked on my front yard about 15 feet from my house to dissuade predators, but eventually am going to move it and try to make it a more permanent part of my landscape. Hawks are the prevalent problem for me. My first question is that they have not been up inside the nesting area yet. It's dark in there and I think it's probably not very appealing to go inside. The coop is too small (or I'm too big!!) to really get in there and teach them how to get up and down the ramp. I've replaced the ramp that is in there with an antique ladder that they seem to like perching on but they mostly hang out on the bottom rungs during the night time. I have shavings in there on top of my grass. I know that pretty soon they'll be laying, so I wondered if I could just forget about the nesting area and build a couple of milk crate nesting boxes that I would rest off the ground below the boxed in part of the structure. Thanks in advance!!!
