Two questions to get things started...
Would you be storing wood there longterm, or taking barrowloads regularly?
Would they be locked away when you get wood? Secondly, any self-respecting chook I know would hang out on top of the woodpile, crapping all over it, and/or the tarp.
I love chooks, but I reckon they are often a problem, rather than a solution...
