My husband and I just added a poop tray under the roosting poles. It is made out of 2X4's and plywood and I put PDZ and shavings in it to catch the poop. Problem is one of the girls that liked laying in the floor "under" the nesting boxes now has decided the poop tray is a nice place to lay eggs and some of the others see her doing it and are thinking they might like to do that too! Would wire over it prevent this, since they couldn't scratch and get comfortable to lay? Learning daily about the gals. There is always something going on. Thank you for any input.
