Identifying Predator Poop?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I found a bob of wet brown poop outside my coop door this morning. Something must have gotten into the run and had been checking out the coop. I live in New Hampshire, so we have quite a few predators in the area, but I hadn't seen any evidence of their interest in the chickens until today. Any idea what it was? One of my neighbors decided to release a bunch of rabbits, so I have a couple of those that have taken up residence on my property.They may be attracting new predators as well. Thanks.

First, are you sure it's not a chicken poop:

Great article on VENTILATION, one of THE MOST IMPORTANT aspects of coop design.

Fantastic treatise to help decide how much SPACE your chickens need.

 

Chicken math is not just 'addition'...but also should include Division, Multiplication and especially Subtraction!!!

"Make every effort to understand your chicken's biology and the environment that supports it."
