    Heard a funny noise outside this morning.....5 new chicks. I knew I had a hen sitting somewhere so it was only a matter of time.

    Hi chicken mummys, I'm just after a little advice. Do you ladies have any trouble with mice/rats attracting snakes? We live close to bushland and have seen a few brown snakes so really don't want to increase that number. Also we have a garden shed that we were thinking of turning into the coop it has a concrete floor do you think that will be to had on the chickens feet? To hot in summer? They can run free during the day

    We live on a farm, and *touch wood* I haven't seen any snakes. I often wonder if the noise from the chickens movements keep them away!

    With the garden shed, it should be fine, but you will need to put some ventilation in. Cut out some windows and cover with mesh to allow some air flow but keep them protected. I'd do it higher than the roosting perches though to keep the cold air off them in winter. Chickens like to roost off the ground, and prefer flat perches over rounded I've found. Good luck!
