    I was wondering how I could keep my bantams from roosting on the windowsills of my henhouse? It was originally a playhouse, and it has normal style windowsills and they like to sleep on them and as you can imagine-POOP on them. It is very hard to keep them clean, and I want the henhouse as clean as possible, you know? Any ideas?

    Maybe angle a piece of plywood so they cant balance there. Some pictures of what your dealing with might spur some other ideas.

    Do you have wire over the windows? The wire would both deter them from roosting and protect them from predators.
