    WV: I thought about that. It depends on how closely it's stuck to her. She has been sitting on t since yesterday. Not picking, to my knowledge.

    I'd put hardware cloth nailed to the roof below it to help keep persistent predators like raccoons from tearing their way in.

    That's what I'm here for, to say all the things that other people are too nice to say. Need an example? See my next reply...

    You girls are too soft, but when you snap it can be ugly. Exhibit A is in my next reply...

    I know how to handle him, and it's fun for me. You get too emotionally involved

    I have been working my butt off to find some SOP SLWs this time of year. I finally found two from a lady selling her extras. She says they come from Duane Urch a breeder of SOP for 50 years and an APA judge. Sweet. So I go pick them up. The next day I call Duane to see if he has anymore. He says he stops hatching in may and does not breed SLW anymore. [​IMG]

    It is possible that he helped the lady find SOP SLW. He does do that for folks from what I have heard. They are supposed to be pullets, but one has short wings and no tail yet so I'm really hoping he is a cockerel. Crazy uh? Hoping for a cockerel! If they are not it's not a huge loss. Paid 10 bones a piece for them.
