I let my chickens out...they have 3/4 of an acre to forage, climb trees, dust bath and eat what's left of the garden. But, NO they come around to the front of the house and hang out on the porch! What gives? I love them, I really do but I am sick of shooing them and I don't want to be stepping in chicken poo when I walk out the door. Has anyone come up with deterents that work for this sort of thing? http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/2958446316/in/photostream/ Edited to add pic because they really are cute!
