    HI,
    My hen is hatching out her eggs....8 chicks so far,16 eggs.
    I have a cage about 2 ft. by 4 ft. metal frame.1 inch chicken wire that we put over her......
    She is setting beside the house otherwise unprotected.
    I would like to get her in the barn where she would be easier to care for.
    I have a problem with rats and squirrles.
    Thinking about pegboard??????????
    Just not sure what is safe and how much room they need.
    Thank You
