    How steep is to steep for a ramp into the coop? Is 45 degrees to much or can it be even steeper? My coop is about 40" off the ground so I need to know how far out to start the ramp.
    Thanks

    45 is fine. Steeper will work. Just make sure they have sure footing in the form of treads for traction.
