    I wasn't sure where to post this. I have 2 sheds that sit about 6-8 inches off the ground. When regular chickens (not bantam) are fully grown, will they attempt to go under the shed and will they be successful? We also have a fence that ranges from on the ground to probably 6 inches off. Will they try to go under that too? Thanks for your help!

    It's a definite yes that they will go under the sheds. More than likely they'll try to lay eggs under there as well.
