Hi everybody. My chickens are finally moving outside today and I'm super excited about it. We have converted the underused kids'clubhouse into a coop. As soon as the doors go up on the outside run, they are moving out of the stinky, dusty laundry room. I really hope that the ramp that goes from the run to the coop isn't too steep for them, but I guess I'll find out in a couple hours. Anyway, thanks for being here.

Out to pasture
Hope it works out for you, you may have to put treats on the ramp to give them the idea to climb. Welcome to the BYC flock.

Hi, welcome to BYC!

So how did the ramp work out for your birds? If it's too steep, you can put a block of wood under the bottom of it (the end that touches the ground). That will elevate the ramp and make it less steep.

Nice to have you here. If you have any questions, feel free to ask.

Hey ! I am new to the group and we currently have a small 5 chicken coop that were using but we would like to keep the chickens over winter ! My question is who else keeps there chickens over winter and how do you keep them warm ! Remember we're up in Canada and last years winter was even colder than normal ! - 44 was the coldest day last winter ! I was thinking of building a garden shed and putting it inside my big shed with access to the outside ! Thanks for the help !
