    We have chain link fencing covered by chicken wire. Will need to cover in hardware cloth to prevent future bobcats from reaching in at night to grab perched hens, or build a wooden hen house. Neighbor had bobcat attack night before last and kill 5 hens.

    Secure the coop and yard. Trap and cull to keep predator populations down.
