So recently I lost two hens, from the bottom of my pecking order, to a fox because two of my red stars blocked them from entering the coop before the door automatically closed. These two mean girls like the spot directly behind the door because it has a 2x8 that they prefer to roost on rather than the ample perches in the coop. I put the 2x8 in to seal up some rat damage from chewing thru the edge of the floor. This solved the rat problem but had unintended consequences. Is anyone aware of something I could put over the 2x8 that chickens would be too bothered to perch on overnight? I was thinking plastic astro-turf of something they will find offensive but that wont hurt their feet. Thoughts? Thank you!
