This may be a dumb question and not even possible. We have 4 RRR's which we keep for eggs. Coop them at night and they have the run of our yard in the daytime. One of our chicks insists on laying eggs in a large galvanized metal wash tub I have made into a planter on our porch. Covered it with chicken wire in various ways. The chick finds her way in and has ruined my special plants, grrrrr! Is there any way to keep this chick out of there. I hate to corral them into a contained space as we so enjoy watching there antics through our front window. Just asken for HELP!!!

Or sturdier wire like 2"x4" mesh as tall as needed made into a circle around the tub.

Well the problem is solved. We have tried all the above without success. The place where we bought the crazy obsessive chicken has agreed to exchange it for (hopefully) a less crazy chicken.

Thanks for your input.
