    Hi,

    We just put our 6 week old chicks (15 of them) in their coop. How high should the last roost be from the dropping board?

    We have only two inches and the chicks are walking around on the dropping board? Anything to be concerned with?

    I notice from pics everyone else seems to have more space?

    Any advice appreciated.

    Thanks

    Our first time raising chickens! Our 4 kids are loving the experience!

    How many roosts do you have and how high are they from the dropping board?
