WHO ARE THE WORST PREDATORS OF CHICKENS?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Everybody loves chicken! Daytime, we have hawks, cats and dogs. most predators are nocturnal and include fox, opossum, skunk and raccoon. By far, my worst one is raccoon. They are persistent, clever, can climb or dig and their paws can manipulate. Any opening is a challenge,and they will keep at it until the whole flock is gone.

Sometimes you have to build a fortress in order to raise chickens.

Worst chicken killer is domestic dogs then coons, then possums, then skunks.

5 acres, 2 dogs, 1 cat, 6 ducks, 1 husband, and an ever expanding number of chickens.
