I didn't notice before, but is that a glass window?  If so, you might want to consider putting hardware cloth on the inside so they don't break it.  Just make a frame to go over the inside to stretch the hardware cloth on and fasten it to the wall.

I want to build something similar for the girls barn but their barn is much bigger and the boys really really needed more real estate. They sleep on it and play on it and I use a brush to brush the poop off into a bucket in the morning so it's not so disgusting ;) Their food bowls and mineral feeders are underneath the platforms so they don't get poop in them too. It's working really well.
