    They will probably get used to it eventually.

    hmmmm... I wonder if putting them in their coop and locking them up might calm them? Just a thought - I have no idea. Of course, you'd have to do this everytime the shooting starts - but I'd guess it's mostly weekends? Or...could you "create" a place for them to hide? like the one under the tarp??
