Due to the tenacity of the fox on our 100 acres-despite having controlled raccoons and possums-I have switched from total free range to confiement with pullet shut door and electric netting. Funny while free ranging was all about hamburgs, fayoumis, anconas, in an attempt at giving them the best chance outside (although they always had the coop with solar door for night)-now it is all about the larger more traditional hens. Wyandottes, RIR, BR, my beloved cochins who I had decided to give up for life. Luckily my big birds seem perfectly happy with their new lifestyle and my remaining hamburgs have stopped slipping thru the netting. I had always loved the big birds but had done a 360 in an attempt to free range. Now I am back with my big heavies. They seem happy so I am too.
