    With an entrance hole so chickens could fly
    Up there, but predators couldn't climb up the metal. ? I thot I saw this idea but can't find it now. Any thots?

    Thankyou. How high do you think the entrance should be. Should there be a peg or something to land on?

    6-8 feet and yes a shelf like structure to land on would be great!

    Do you know anyone who has tried this? The only predator I can think of might be an owl.
