OK...I am a total newbie here. We are in the process of finishing our remodeled playhouse/coop and have 12 chicks to house. So, does anyone know if bears are predators to chickens? We have a black bear that has taken to roaming the neighborhood and do not yet have a run for our girls. We intend to put an electric fence around the perimeter of the run for any stray dogs etc. because we do not live in a fenced yard sort neighborhood and we do have occasional dogs roaming. Bears are common here and have free range but tend mostly top rob untended garbage cans. So, anyone here ever have to deal with bears?? We are wondering how aggressive they might be toward the chicks/chickens.
