I am an Environmental Health and Safety Specialist at a high school district, married with 2 grown daughters (not living at my house, yay!), 2 dogs and a fish aquarium. My dogs are wonderful with people but have dog aggression issues. I feel one of my dogs is the biggest threat to my hens rather than all the possum, raccoons, coyotes, hawks and other predators in the area.

It took me 2 years to sufficiently create a fortress that I considered safe and comfortable enough to raise happy laying hens.

G’Day from down under clemens… :frow Welcome!

I hope you enjoy being a BYC member. There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun.

Including your general location on your profile will assist others. Location, climate, season etc can be important factors when members are responding to any questions you may have and vice versa.

BYC has Topic of the Week discussions which I have found to be a great resource, informative and sometimes entertaining; so definitely worth checking out. These two may be of particular interest to you:
Topic of the Week - Keeping the Flock Safe from Predators
Topic of the Week - Dogs and chickens

If you would like to share Pictures and Stories of your flock or other critters, you have come to the right place. BYC’ers never tire of these and do not back away slowly or commence eye rolling when the photo album or home videos come out ;)
