I'm just wondering how many other chicken owners make numerous nightly walks through their backyards looking for predators? I have made every effort to making both my coops predator proof and feel quite confident that nothing can get in there... however, I find myself every night walking to both pens with flashlight in hand checking out my coops. I do this at least twice between dark and midnight. In the beginning, I even carried my gun! Now I leave that sitting inside by the backdoor.... just in case! My teenage son has even started doing flashlight patrol off the back deck every night, shining the light on the ground, in the trees, on the roofs of the coops, searching for those glowing eyes in the dark. Guess I'm making the kids paranoid too! I also got another dog this last week, a cute little beagle pup I'm hoping will turn into a heck of a chicken/guard dog Do others do this also, or am I just paranoid?
