Dang predators!  

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Over the last month, I've lost at least 8 chickens(including two sitting hens) to a hawk and either a fox or cat. They free range during the day and are locked up at night. Due to number of chickens, I can't keep them all locked up. During the week, I'm usually gone from daylight till dark so it's hard to watch then during the day. Ugh!!

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!!!

 

Quoting centrarchid:

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