    keep the hens off my deck?
    I have free ranging bird and like to keep it that way but they want to visit my
    deck and pation much to often...the cleaning off of poop everyday is getting old!!!
    Are any tricks to trade to get your girls to stay in the lower 40?

    Plus I have a dog and his castle is the deck so really don't want to gate it.

    Spray them with a squirt gun or set up a motion detector sprayer. They learn quickly.
