    How steep of a pitch does the ramp have to be?? Also, do you keep the food and water in the coop? I am already planning on having water in the run also. [​IMG]

    Don't know about the ramp. I keep food and water in the coop.

    I think a 45 degree angle would be a bit too much. But anything less should work.

    I keep food and water in the coop and a water bowl outside as well. My chickens free range most of the day.
