In the Brooder
- Mar 1, 2011
We are getting ready to put our chicks outside for the first time. I am nervous. Our yard backs up to a huge protected forest. So there is everything and anything in there. Our coop is standing 2 feet above ground and is locked at night. Can predators still find a way in? I am praying not. We only have six chickens. If they can get in we could lose em all in one night. The coop is surrounded by a fence with chicken wire laid underground around the perimeter of the fence and there is fencing above as well. I know these things are determined at night, so I just want to be prepared. Any advice would be appreciated.
