In the Brooder
- Apr 24, 2014
Hello, folks. My girlfriend and i just got into raising chickens and i want to let them free range during the day and put them away at night. I am concerned with doing this because noone will be home during the day as we both work day jobs. I dont know a lot about chickens but i do know i have to worry about predators and my question is do i have to worry about hawks if i have a rooster in the flock? Will he protect his hens during the day while i'm away? I'm sorry if this question sounds stupid to some of you but i really want to let them free range during the day but hawks and such are a concern.
