    Wish I could find an easy solution to keep birds away from my chicken pens, besides keeping the chickens behind a wire barrier.

    The only way I know is to move feeders and waters indoors away from openings. I avoid feeding anything outside that the chickens don't clean up while I'm stranding there.
