    My DH bought a wildlife game cam the other day and set it up near the coop and run. I checked out the pictures today and found these:

    The daylight picture was half an hour after I was there feeding the chicks. Thanks to posts read here on BYC, my coop and run are predator proof (so far) and no chicks were harmed. The run is covered with welded wire with hardware cloth on the sides. The is a 3 foot apron on the ground around the sides and the windows on the coop are secured with hardware cloth.

    Might have to get me one. We have quite a few foxes we see in the day. Can't imagine what goes on at night.
