    My beagles got loose today and hurt 1 rooster, killed 2 roosters and a hen. This is the second time this has happened. It is maddening! Just venting.

    Quote:Sorry this happened.. welcome to BYC there are some really great threads on here about preditor proofing your coop.. I personally dug two foot down around the permiter then lined it with wire so that it would keep anything out.. and used fencing and chicken wire doubled up.. has worked so far.. but I am pretty sure my dog doesnt get at them.. I need to replace the net across the top and there is at least one every morning out with the dog sometimes two or three.. [​IMG]
