Jen- I would love to see your setup too. I am very interested in hearing how much landscaping is needed to actually protects the flock. I have this barren space that I am debating whether to landscape or fence in. Maybe we could head over to Ridgefield together one day. There really needs to be a Funky Chicken Coop Tour in CT like there is in other parts of the country.
Hey I'd love to be included in that tour! I have 5 chickens in a chicken tractor with an 8X5 footprint (pics on my page). The girls pretty much have the run of my fenced back yard, which also has enough landscaping to give them cover from the hawks, which so far are the only predators in the yard-although i've seen fox and other critters in the woods that my yard backs to.
