    I'm planning on turning an old storage shed into a coop but it's currently home to several wasps nest. Because I'm allergic to wasps, this worries me a bit. Is there something I can do the peak of the roof (ceiling) so they won't nest there, or will the chickens keep them away, or better yet, eat them [​IMG] ?

    When I raised pigeons I had vents at the top and bottom of the coop and the wasps were able to crawl through the hardware cloth until I covered the hc with window screen, that kept the wasps out.
