    Also, I have one question, is there a trick to getting Silkies to use a ramp? [​IMG]
    Mine just sit and wait by the bottom of it until I put them home at night and in the morning they just wander blindly until they fall on to it. [​IMG]

    I've tried putting food on it and setting them on it, they just don't seem to get it.

    Thank you! [​IMG]

    The roof is awesome, their "Sun roof" lets in the morning sun, but keeps out the afternoon sun. [​IMG]
