I have someone coming out to set a trap tomorrow. Then I plan to work on fortifying the coop and run before spring.

Do not be satisfied with capture of one.

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

Correct, but if you have a family unit, then knocking it all off may give you a reprieve and make you feel better. To be up front, if me I would not even waste money catching the first. Rather get to work upgrading coop and possibly look into how raccoons can be repelled. I have killed raccoons many times, but simply repelling is more cost effective by any measure, unless pelts become valuable again or you or a friend really like eating raccoon.

Ok, he/she said they were going to fortify the coop.
