Hello, I am new to the whole chicken thing. I have a couple seasoned vets helping me through the process and have been reading a lot on the board. I have my coop built and I am pretty much ready to go, but I am concerned about predators, especially raccoons. I live in the city and there are raccoons that live in the sewers in front of my house. My yard is surrounded by chain link fence but I have watched them easily climb up and over it. My coop is pretty secure, an A frame design with square door in the front. I have concerns about two ways they might get in: 1. One side of the roof is hinged, a 4'x4' sheet of 7/16" OSB with shingles. Can the raccoons lift it up enough to get inside? I'd say it weighs about 30lbs, and the bottom edge of the roof is about 8-10"off the ground. 2. The door is a 12"x12" square, hinged at the top. I have eye screws on the door and the frame, connected by one of those things they use on dog leashes, the kind you slide the part with your thumb. Can a raccoon figure out a way to open this? If so, what's a good latch to use? The latch is all the way at the bottom to one side. I tried prying open the other corner and it only opens about an inch or so, not enough for a coon to squeeze through. I do have a humane trap, and I read that some people will just leave it out, baited, 24/7. I don't have a problem doing that... I was trying to catch a groundhog years ago and kept catching stray cats, coons, and squirrels, so I know it will work. The chickens will free range during the day. Not really sure how many hawks are around but we'll just have to see how that goes. I do get stray cats in the yard, but the person i'm getting my chickens from said they shouldn't be a problem. Thanks in advance!
