    We have some really neat birds around here. I would hope they will keep looking nice from a distance.
    Our planned coop went from across the creek to the leanto in the backyard. The coop will be about 70' from the house.Will we have problems with flying predators?

    Not if you add a roofed, fenced run with no openings larger than 1/2". I don't want to sound callous, but creeks are gathering points for all predators.

    I know we have foxes, and king and rat snakes here. I was really hoping I did not have to cover the run... [​IMG]
