    My hens will not walk up a ramp and into their laying box area. I've put hay into but they will not up and into it. I've only had them 3 days but thought by now they would walk up. Any thoughts or helpful hints?

    [​IMG] I have not personally tried this but since we are in the process of building a coop I have done some reading. If you have a solid based ramp, you can sprinkle scratch on it or something even more enticing. [​IMG]
