    Yes, they manage the ramp that said it took some convincing and yes it needs paint lol venting all along the sides... i also own a few others houses one is a raised type that said i remove them daily so they have on the ground outside time, this house i have shown you is in a 10X10 dogrun.

    Honestly, calls winter super well and love to swim even in frigid freezing temps.

    thanks! its good to know that they are able to survive the winter! I have rabbits, and one of them is old and might be coming inside for winter, she is alone in a large hutch do you think that would work for my calls this winter? if not we are building a new chicken coop.
