I have two dogs that have never bothered my chickens or the coop until recently. Neither of them bother the girls, but my boxer/lab has gotten into the habit of climbing into the coop and getting their eggs. I'm not happy about him getting the eggs, but am really not happy about how he is breaking the coop. I've given thought to taking out the ramp. Will the girls still go in and out when they need to lay or go to roost? It's winter here, so hate to risk them not being able to get out of the cold when they need to. Any suggestions on a barrier that will allow my girls to wander free, be able to get in and out of their coop, but to keep the dog out?
