Went out to the coop this morning and found one of my rir pulled halfway through the chicken wire. He was pretty ate up. Im in tears for what she went thru and not having her ptotectef well enough. From what i have read i believe it was a racoon, but where we live there are hawks, owls and coyotes that could also be on the list. Will this predator be back tonight? I will sit out with a 22 if necessary!!! I have 11 more chickens i would like to protect. And yes hardware cloth is coming soon i have read its better than chicken wire.
