Hi- I'm new to posting but have visited this site for over a year enjoying all the info.
Does anyone have tips on how to keep chickens off the patio furniture when they are allowed to free-range around it? They seem to find it as irresistible to sit on as I do- except with chicken poo on it it is less than inviting.

If they are going to free range, they are gonna poop on the patio furniture.

BTW... welcome to

Thanks for all the welcomes! I just figured out how to read the comments to my post- This site Rocks! I was out putting a coat of oil on my outdoor table today only to look over and see two of the girls doing their "scratch dance" on the chair- leaving behind a token of their appreciation too. They are just too darned fun to watch to make them stay off somewhere where I can't see them. But I may change my mind if the maintenance becomes too much.
After waiting and dreaming for years and years and years- I finally have my very own flock of 8 week old chicks:
they are Roobe- the GLW (we hope she is not a roo) but she might be- hence the name- the most friendly and follows me like a puppy.
Halo - an EE - she almost didn't make it- she's our miracle girl.
Bratty bird- an EE - formally known as Betty Boop until she became a brat - she's hilarious though - her other name is "hit and run" cause that's what she does to all the others.
Sweetie Pie- a SLW- she is sweet.
Miss Kitty - an EE with a full muff- she had tiger stripes
Peanut- an Ee - used to be the smallest and now almost the largest
So there you have my little flock of feathers from heaven- I will post their photos soon when I figure it all out.
