In the Brooder
- Apr 20, 2016
So as I have stated in past threads, I have a few free roaming chickens in my backyard that I can't seem to keep in a cage for too long. I try just running around or surprise catching, nothing works too well. Plus I tend to rough up their feathers in the end trying to catch them. So I decided to go for a more humane trap that will require less force and be better for both the chicken and I both. I'm going to buy a trap, a standard trap used for coyotes, racoons and such. Only problem is that I don't know what trap works best, or it will even work. What dimension trap should I buy for the chickens and if you have any experince with it yourself, what bait should I use and what should I keep in mind?
