So my "neighbor" (who just happens to be my brother) has had some chicken poop show p on his back porch. Seems he's not to fond of it. I offered to clean it off when it happens, but he said "keep 'em locked up". Currently, we have 28 birds, half of wich are going to the local auction b/c they are roo's ( chance you take with "free" babies) next week. I agreed to compromise, and keep them penned during the day, and only let them out for a few hours at night. Well, last night 3 of my girls decided to roost high up in the oak tree where I couldn't reach them. Needless to say, you can't let 3 in with out letting 25 out. So I left them out for the day....only to come home and find out he actually SHOT one of my hens!!! So, after a few choice words and gestures....I need to figure out a way to let my birds out of their 18 x 18 pen to pick thru the yard, etc. What's my best choice? I've seen some poltry netting, fences, etc. but have no ex[erience with any of it because they've always enjoyed my 2.5 acres freely. Any ideas?
