does anyone keep a brushpile for the chickens to hide in? i made one that was originally for the goats to nibble on. after a while i noticed chicken poop inside it and realized that they were using it even though i never saw them. there are some that roost in there and they all hang out in there at least some during the day. it's in a place between a shade tree and two large open connecting fields. i have a fence between me and the fields. it's always seemed to me like that would be the perfect place for a hawk to come and eat them in that area. but, luckily, it never happens. i feel like at least part of that is the brushpile which gives them a large place to hide and hang out in the most dangerous area. does anyone else use a brush pile or something similar as cover from predators?
