We have 4 standards and 2 silkies. I know 2 boxes should be enough, but should I make a third one and place it lower for the silkies? or will they get up just as high as the other ladies?

My girls don't mind height but really love a ladder or ramp access with a walkway / perch on the front of the nests. Seems with this available, they prefer the top nests. Must be an instinct, trying to avoid predators?
