I'm so new to this! I've wanted chickens for years but finally convinced my husband. I'm supposed to get 2 ameraucana and 2 buff orpingtons March 13th as day olds. And then 2 barred rocks on the 29fh. I'm starting to freak out! I'm worried about predators. Like reading some posts has me scared. I want to be the best mama to these chicks as possible!
Any advice before we build our coop? I'm assuming since I'm in the downtown I'm only looking at cats and coons as predators.
Is it worth it? Should I stop worrying and just build the dang thing but take all the care to make it as safe as possible?
