    We just moved our coop (see picture) into the empty space in our 3 car garage for the winter. Thought it would be easier for all concerned to have a nice dry space to "winter" in. ANYWAYS......since their move the girls don't climb their ramp to sleep, instead they stay on the ground in the corner (I fenced in the area in front of the house, put down a tarp and covered with shavings). No concerns here, just wondering WHY?? They are silkies so perhaps they consider themselves too "pretty" to continue doing such physical work like climbing a ramp in the winter
