This hand made chicken house and run has several advantages over house and run in-line formats including:
1) The hens have a covered run, affording a degree of critical shade & shelter when needed, but the run is never fully shaded so still allows ‘sun time’.
2) Like most birds hens have a natural tendency to seek a high perch at night so soon learn to use the ramp to go ‘up to bed’.
3) Hens instinct is to lay eggs in a low place, hidden from view and ideally in subdued lighting (eg. divot under a bush). Taking that into account the sunken nest at the far dark end of the house, is a must place to lay.
