    I want to take the doors and screens off my porch, but I don't want my chickens to go on the porch. I have been reading about a shock line, but I am wondering if there are other alternatives?
    Thanks!!

    Maybe some kind of a small fence? Any kind of deterent should work.

    Get a naked rubber chicken and lay it in a frying pan for them to see!




    or


    you could try the fence idea, something like one of those child fence things.
