What daytime predators do we have to watch out for? We lost our rooster during the day, I think to a hawk, but other than that what will hunt during the day? We lost 2 of our girls to racoons, but it was because we didn't get home in time to close the coop before dusk. I want to free range and then close up the coop at night. My "free ranging" will be in a fenced area 40 X 50 roughly. I don't want to close them up in something smaller than this, but I don't want to let them have full access to our 3 acres and be out in the open.
