Hey everyone, We live in the shenandoah valley of va and are in process of moving to out new property. We have been clearing the property for the last 8 months and have recenty found Bear tracks... OH God! Now, we are not oblivious to the fact that there are all varieties of wildlife here, but the bears have never been seen before now.. Will they attach chickens? It has alsways been my understanding that black bears are herbavores manly, and not meat eaters.The coop and pen are in the process of being constructed and believe me we are taking every precaution and are building it like Fort Knox.( heavy fencing, buried with buried permiter, heavy roof, reinforced, locks,( something koons cant fugure out) and electric fencing.) Any other suggestions? We are planning to alsokeep the feed for the birds inside the coop rather than out in the pen. of of sight to predators. Im nervous, I just started on this chicken adventure and surely dont want to find a pen full of dead birds.
