Hi! My DH is a deer hunter and we have 5 acres of land for him to hunt on. Back in the day before me his roommate had a bunch of cats and he build an outdoor fenced pen for the cats. It is still there with lots of fence on the top and a cathouse that would make a great chickenhouse. It would need some fixing up, not too much. I want this for my chickens but DH claims this would deter the deer from that area. My DH would not shoot my chickens, but according to him the deer won't come around that area b/c of the chickens. He has a deer corn feeder 40 ft from the cathouse. So any opinions would be welcomed.
