Looking for ramp ideas for hen house. The pop door is about 18 inches off the floor and to get a gentle slope for the hens to exit will be a long ramp. If there are any ideas for me I would appreciate them. Pictures would be nice too.

None of my girls have any trouble negotiating them.
You could always do a series of platforms too.

Dog eared fence board. $1.25. Add a few strips of wood for treads. I flip mine over when poop builds up. So its two sided with treads. That also hides any screws that run over.
this first picture I was using a fence board just to see if they would use the roost when I was building the coop. I used the unfinished coop as a play pin for the four week Olds as a hawk made a pass at them in the yard.
They got to big for just a board So i added treads. It made the board stiff with less sag. Cheap and works great having reversible sides for poop.

I just made a little ramp out of scrap wood. Sometimes they use it, most times they just jump up and fly out.
