... and it begins. I've had my pullets out in their new Ft Knox hardware cloth enclosed coop only 2 weeks ago and we had our first visitor last night. These are my first chickens and a dream of mine to have them for about 10 years. We live on a canyon in San Diego, and are well aware of the predators we have around here, but I at least want to try and see if I can keep chickens safely. Fingers crossed.
