Step 12: Adding a ramp

-The chicken coop is just about finished but a few final steps are needed to touch it up.

-Using an old scrap piece of wood screw in a ramp underneath the door so the chickens can walk in and out of the coop.

-Make sure the ramp does not impede the door from opening.
This is a great Instructable, but you need to add a main image of the final project to the intro step. Please do that and leave me a message when you have so that we can publish your work. Thanks!
<p>You should include what you need to put for chickens to roost on . What about nesting boxes ? We get chickens that lay eggs? You are very good at this ! Give us more !</p>
<p>How do you get the coop where the chickens can get in and critters can't ??</p>

Very nice job! So many people like to over-complicate this kind of thing, but you have kept it good and simple. I was planning to build some chicken coops on the side of a hill and I bet this design would be good for that.
I love how you have used recycled material in your <a href="http://www.chickencoopplansblog.com">chicken coop plans</a>. &nbsp;I did the same with mine and it is much sturdier than the prefab chicken coops that you can purchase. &nbsp;I used a set of drawers for nesting boxes in mine and my girls love it!
Well, this is something I can get my head around (no I've never constructed anything before). I would need to modify it to make solid walls as I am looking to make a small brooder/time out coop but thanks for taking the time to 'splain this. :-)
I based my chicken coop off this instructable. Particularly the salvaged 4x4 posts.<br />
are those guini chicks?
