Don't get all your exercise leaping to conclusions!

Poultry- they may be your pets, they may be your hobby, they may be your livestock. But remember, if you fall down in the pen, unconscious? They WILL eat you.

Good thinking...a broom!  I was thinking that they might get uncomfortable being up there all night.  lol

Thanks for the welcome!

I use an old natural corn broom, whack them on the butt. Then grab them fast and put them up. Not so much uncomfortable as unsafe. A raccoon could easily climb up there.

Have fun! big_smile
