    Hello Everyone,
    I have 2 hens and 5 cats, our cats are hunters, they only hunt birds, moles and rats
    I have found that rats do go eat chickens and I found some dead rats in the garden (good work cats :) )
    I am afraid of get a fox !
    Please help me to keep the preditors away!

    I don't think you can ever be 100% predator-proof, but if you read a bunch of the threads in this section you will get lots of good ideas of the best things to do.

    If the coop and run are like Fort Knox, you won't have to worry.
