We've sortof become unintentional chicken care-takers as one came to us a couple of months ago and has been here ever since (might have something to do with us feeding her...). She roams our yard and the neighbors' yards during the day and appears to be pretty healthy and has managed to elude the hawks, cats, dogs, raccoons, and possum so far. Anyways, we've gotten kind of attached to her so we wanted to build something a little more secure for her to sleep in at night, since she roosts outside our bedroom window. Right now she is roosting on top of a fence post about 5 feet high, next to our house under the eave, wrapped up in grape vines. We've tried giving her a pet carrying kennel to go into, but it freaked her out and she's completely avoided it. I was thinking about building up around her roosting spot, little by little, so it doesn't freak her out so much but I don't know if that will work. Is there anything I can do to get her to use a secure box I build her? She won't let us touch her, so I don't think I'll be able to pick her up and show her in. The main thing I want to avoid is scaring her away and her having to find a new roosting spot. Ideally I'd like to get a tree branch for her to stand on, build a secure wooden box around it, have the floor open, but with some raccoon-proof hog wire below the perching branch, and then a door that we can close at night. Does she need anything else, or does that sound okay? Thanks!
