    Are there any other fellow Canadians here? Considering getting some chicks next spring and I'm looking for advice and suggestions on how to start.

    I have general questions ie. city by laws, will raccoons bother my chickens etc. I was raised around them with my grandmother so I'm comfortable with caring for them.

    Please reach out to me, thanks

    welcome to byc from the east coast!!!!!

    racoons will DEFINANTELY bother your chickens. and by laws on chickens are different everywhere you go, even different counties.

    good luck!

    [​IMG] Raccoons will do more than bother your chickens. If they can get a hold of any part of a chicken thru the fence, they will eat as much off as they can. They inflict great damage/death on chickens. They are not a friend.
