Do not make the door open inwards on the coop! I didn't think it was a big deal. So, I would have to push the shavings out of the way when I opened the door. Whatever. Well, the chickens have now decided that they like ROOSTING ON THE OPEN DOOR! So every night when I go to lock them up, I have to climb up the crap covered roost ladder and reach precariously over to the door and grab each chicken (usually at least 3) off the top of the door trying not to fall into the lovely shavings below - trying not to drop the chicken that is flapping crazily at this point cause I was only able to grab one leg and get her onto the actual roosts! Some day, someone is going to get hurt! I did try just closing the door slowly to push them off, but they stick their necks down to look at me and see what I am doing, so I run the risk of decapitating them! Aargh! Every. Single. Night.
