Our Buff Orps have taken several swims in the pool recently and could not get out. They always swim for the shallow ledge in the skimmer and hang out in about 3 1/2 inches of water and wait for rescue. So I built a safety prototype. Its basically a 2x6 for them to step out on in case of emergency. The 2x6 blocks the Chick from entering the skimmer, but still lets leaves float underneath. Now I wait for them to test it out. I will post pics when the forum allows me to.
