I'm seeing alot of posts from people saying they are have trouble with predators getting their free range birds. Free range birds can have boundries. My birds are free range and I have never had a problem with any predators. I live in the country and see coyotes, possums, skunks, and racoons around on a regular basis, yet I've never had one get my birds or my eggs. See, my birds have the full run of the back half acre of my property and the fence around my place is made of horse wire. Rabbits can't even squeeze through! I have two goats back there to deterr any fence climbing possums or coons, and my border collie is outside of the fence and runs patrols pretty regular. To deterr hawks and owls, I have a faux owl mounted on a fence post. Now, this may not work for all birds as some can and will fly over a fence, but for most standard sized chickens, turkeys, geese and ducks it will work. Grow organic!
