    I have a 10x20 secure run attached to the coop that is wrapped in hardware cloth and the roof is tin. I let them out into a yard that is fenced deer netting that is also over the top. . I ran 3 strands of electric fence around it. 7'x100' rolls of deer netting from Lowes. We have hawks...

    That's encouraging! Question, if they don't, will my hen remain broody until some chicks do hatch?

    Dominant too vs the other guy.

    I have 2 roosters to 13 hens. 1 must go eventually. One is dominant, even does the domination dance towards me sometimes. He bosses everyone around. He doesn’t seem to be violent though. The other is non of these things. They are 4 months old. Which one should I keep?
