and I'm not talking about my chickens. Since last spring I've had a single sparrow living with my chickens. I've tried everything to run him off, but he always comes back. He sleeps, eats and dustbathes with my chickens. Now apparently he/she has taken a mate and they are building nests in my coop, on the upper half of the human door. DH blocked off all the openings near the roof when he built the coop. The only way this booger gets in is to go through the pop door; which he does right along with the chickens. I have torn down three nests so far. I was just out there and there's a new one in the same exact spot. I wonder if I'm wasting my time by even trying.
