Went out this morning to let my six chicks out into their run and noticed several bobcat tracks near the run. Since all the ground is sand it was very easy to recognize the tracks. Our coop and run is very secure and I am fairly certain that a bobcat could not get in. This is our first time raising chicks and what does concern us is that we have also seen bears and feral pigs around in the past. The bears are always very skittish and will run away immediately. However, I am hopeful that the thoughts of fresh chick snack would not cause a bear to just crush our whole setup. As for the pigs, it would be difficult for them to break in but a large enough pig could probably break the wire if it really tried. I have a motion sensor light on the outside and I have ordered some of those red, flashing solar lights. Not sure that any of it does any good, but would like to know what, if anything, could be used to deter something like a bear. Anyone have any experience. Also, have not heard of pigs going after chickens. Anyone have any experience or thoughts on that??
