I have a bunch of silkies. I don't know their genders yet. So I'll give you an idea of the inside of my coop first. These are the standard nesting boxes. They are approx. 2 - 3 feet off the ground. My question is can my silkies get into them if I put a ladder up to them (which I plan on doing anyway because my chickens are SPOILED) or should I put a couple of boxes on the floor for them? I am willing to do whatever it takes to keep them comfortable I recently made them a ladder so they can get up on their trash can and lip of the wall for the nights and they LOVE it so I will be making more. This is where they sleep. Just imagine a little 3 rung ladder (roost) next to the can... So is the ladder enough or would they prefer to lay their eggs on the ground? Thanks so much!
