Hey all! Very new here and to chickens! We purchased 6 ISA Browns who are now 4 weeks old. We got a small 6-8 chicken coop from tractor supply but it seems so small and I already know I'm going to want a couple more chickens by this time next year. So, we bought a very yuck 9x5 coop that will hold about 10, because we figured it was better to have something to work off than try to build our own from scratch. My main question is, their nesting boxes are on an upper level. The ramp they had before had a shelf in between, and the ladies used this shelf to roost I think - it had he biggest pile of concrete droppings. So we are trying to build a new ramp system. Do you think this incline is to steep? To awkward? The hubs made it very sturdy, it's just the incline and odd shape I'm worried about. Any ideas on how to make this better? The door will be in the middle of the front of the coop, and I'd like to not have it in the way of the pocket door that will go in the regular door. Also, is the nesting box placement in this coop bad, or is it preferred to have them a bit seperate from where they eat and sleep? This old coop came with a brooder box. Are those safe? It's hard wired, but we would have to install an outdoor electric box on the outside and run an extension cord. So new here, so any advice is very appreciated!! Thanks all!
