I'm getting ready to start the coop and run for my little chicks who are 1 week old. My property where I plan on building their run has a tree house for my children in it. I want to include this piece so the chickens can go under the tree house for shade and protection from rain. The tree house has stairs going straight up the tree. My question, since this is my first time raising chickens, is, can they manage to get up the tree using the straight ladder? I'm afraid they will be able to get out if they can. I may have to alter my plans even though I don't want to. I have suggested to my husband changing the stairs to a rope ladder that we can roll up when the kids aren't using it. What do you think?
