When we get our chickens, we plan on letting them out of their coop/pen into the larger fenced area of our backyard when we are outside. I am assuming a lot of the time that they will be out, the kids will be in our swimming pool. Do we have to worry about them going near the pool? Also...in the winter months we have it covered with a liner that allows water to penetrate through it....it is safe for a human to walk on, but animals with claws like large dogs can damage it if they frequently walk across it...I was wondering if the chickens would avoid walking on this or if anyone thinks it will be an issue? Since they weigh so little I am not concerned about them damaging it as much as maybe getting their toes caught in the fabric? Does this make sense?
