    One or possibly two of my hens will be getting pinless peepers put on this weekend. My current set up doesnt have a ramp to my elevated coop. It has more what I like to call a chicken 'cat' walk leading to the door. Will my hen be able to fly up to this like she normally does, or will I need to put in a ramp for her?

    I've not used pinless peepers before, so I'm not sure just how much it will effect the vision involved with making that sort of jump -- there are several folks here on BYC that use/have used them, though, so hopefully they'll be along shortly to answer it for you. I did want to suggest that it might help them better answer the question if they can actually see the setup so perhaps you can take and post a photo so they can better answer whether the peepers will impeded your bird's ability to navigate it.
