    I just purchased an Eglu Cube for my Serama chickens, I have two large coops for my standard chickens, but after buying my pair of Serama, I found out quickly that it is too dangerous for them to range with my larger birds. It will arrive the end of July and I can't wait. Does anyone have any experience with keeping bantams in this type of setup? One problem I noticed from pictures is that the ladder doesn't go all the way to the ground.

    I've seen those coops in person and they're very cute. Don't know how they would be for winter weather though.....

    Quote:The seramas should be able to jump up to it. It shouldn't be that big of a problem, probably the best chicken breed to have with that setup.

    The ladder is pretty close to the ground; the chickens should be able to get to it. One issue a couple of us have had is that the chickens seem to have a bit of trouble navigating the ladder itself, so we have zip-tied plastic poultry netting to the ladder, which has fixed the problem.
