I bet this is the craziest question ever asked here. ??? I have a workshop with a carport at my property, but no person lives there. I do have many free range chickens that call this property their home. The hens used to lay eggs above the storerooms in the carport, but we have since enclosed the rooms, and the hens can't get up there. They aren't happy with this, and have been carrying on, trying to get up where they used to lay. So, awhile back, I put a smallish dog house/igloo on top of the trash bin with alittle hay. I figured it'd be an easy place to collect eggs. Well, all the hens went crazy and laid piles of eggs in this one igloo. You guessed it, I now have 2 hens camped out in the dog house on all the eggs. I expect that the chicks will be hatching this coming week. Here's my crazy question. The dog house is on the trash can with hens+eggs and soon to be chicks. When the chicks hatch out, I don't want them to wander out and fall to the concrete floor. I don't want to move the igloo. I'd like to put some sort of netting? or border or something to protect the chicks from falling. Maybe a board across the bottom part of the door??? Also, with both hens in there, I could be pecked to death trying to reach in for the chicks. I have a safe "Chicken Jail" for chicks/moms once they're out of the dog house. It's the getting them out that's puzzling me. This great idea for egg collecting isn't such a great idea for chick collecting. Help? Thanks.
