Ive decided to make a new coop as my older coop was getting a bit cramped and ive noticed how it was falling apart. I have a brahma cockerel and some brahma pullets in the flock so i wanted to put their bigger bodies into consideration. I have realized that my brahmas have a problem jumping up since they were chicks so im guessing it will be more of a problem as they grow. So here are the questions i have:
1. Nest box height from ground as i want them to comfortably jump to the perch for the boxes
2. Roost height
3. Roost size & shape
4. Should i make them a ramp for the roost and nest box?

I made ramps for some bumbling brahma's in the first flock.
