I've been leaving the drop-down coop door open during the day so the hens can come and go to the outside pen as they please. With the weather turning cold I've noticed that sparrows and other small birds have begun to come into the coop to take advantage of the free food. When I put the girls in at night I'm met with a dozen or more sparrows as they attempt to leave. I'd like to install a flap like you'd find on a dog door in hopes that the girls would use it but the smaller birds couldn't. Any thoughts/ideas would be appreciated.
