I am getting ready to build a 8 x 8 house for laying hens. Was planning on putting it on blocks- maybe a foot or two off the ground. After reading the posts in the Predators and Pests forum, I'm afraid my wife might punt on the whole idea. A cement floor is not feasible. I could use corner posts and elevate the house much more. Would like to hear suggestions. I live in Virginia in a semi-rural area. Thanks!
