We built this coop and I love the fact that my flock can get under it for Dust baths and to just get out of the sun and sleep during the day...and from light rain... BUT....when it rains hard, down pours..flooding...they tend to run under there instead of inside the coop!!! They are truly not smart...I once laid in deep water, trying to catch them to put them in the coop. Ive blocked it real quick with boards one day so they didnt go under but was a hassel. They of course stayed out in the rain...standing in it...down pours.. Today is severe storms, and down pours..its the start for 4 days. Now Im thinking how do I block this bottom area to make catching easier...and keep them from under so they dont drown? Wish I had better pictures for u to see.... Ive put temp. chicken wire and boards...but I want to make something permanet that I can bring out and put out...ideas??? also I was thinking...you see the front door on the coop...I want them to stay in once I put them in without having to close the door and make them stay shut in...this way they can look out...was thinking a framed board with wire that I can bring out and anchor on the front door??
