    That's a nice roomy space! How many chooks are going to get to enjoy that?

    not sure which ones are going in but we have 58 chickens and we have the camper coop which we have 28 in it and we are going to opening the gate up and just let them go to see who is going to the new coop.

    thanks for coming back on this. I have been a little worried about this. I only got them last week. If im honest I think this little hut is just too small for them, even though I only have the 2. They are both around a year old, so full grown and should know how this works by now!

    I have attached some photos of the inside. The was no nest box inside so I built a small on as a temporary option, but in doing so I dont think I have left enough room for them to flap their way up. I assumed that at only 30cm high, they could simply jump on the nest box and onto the roost, but after checking the freshly painted roost bars, there is not a mark or scratch on them, so still assume they are not using it.

    I do plan on building a proper nest box on the outside, this will open up more than enough space for me to build a small ramp. Bear in mind, during daylight hours the doors are always open, so this is sleep space only.

    im busy sectioning off another part of the garden, in which im going to build another coop, I have just ordered the feathered boards, this one will be 5ft x 5ft, but on reflection, I will use the larger coop for my BO's (and get a few more! ) and use this smaller hut for the 3 smaller hybrids I will be getting.

    I like that gnarly branch for roosting.
