Chicken gym

Formerly I had a ramp, with toe-holds, for the chickens to move from upstairs to downstairs. But, for whatever reason, they would use the ramp to go up, but they would refuse to use the ramp to go down. So today I put in small pine limbs arranged as steps, hoping that the limbs feel safer and more instinctive for them. They used them to go up this evening. I guess we’ll see in the morning whether they’ll use them to come down.

The chickens love to perch. They also are fascinated by anything new and interesting that shows up in their chicken house.


Their egg nest has been installed now. The hens are supposed to lay when they’re five months old. Eggs in August!
