    Free range vs run

    Hey all, I just wanted opinions on how you keep your chickens, I free range mine but was wondering what your opinions were on it. I had an accident with a weasle/mink yesterday and I'm weighing my options if I should turn to a run rather than free range. What are your thoughts?

    My chicken got attacked

    My chicken got attacked by a weasle, shes very much active and has been okay all day. But her top beak is gone. How will this heal? And how can I make the healing process easier on her?

    Turkey helpers?

    Would a turkey chase off a weasle? My chicken got attacked but shes still alive. Like it tried but was cut short, all of my turkeys were out side if the yard when I got home as well.

    Weasles

    One of my chickens was attacked while I was at work, shes alive surprisingly but her top beak is missing, and her head is pretty much missing all feathers. A farmer friend was 99% sure it was a weasle. What do I do if it is?
