Keeping crows away

Hi there,We've had a bit of a problem now & then with crows coming into our chook house to steal eggs. Occasionally one of our chooks will start clucking loudly to let me know if there's a crow nearby but she doesn't do that very often. I was just wondering what are some things that I could do to try & stop it from happening. I do go out & check the house during the day for eggs but I can't really do that when I'm out & about some days.Thanks :)See More
