Ugh! We are going to get chickens. We live on just over an acre in a residential neighborhood. We have red shouldered hawks and barred owls that nest in or around our home. I am reading all of the info on predators and getting nervous. We plan to have a coop and good size run (I have a feeling we will want more chicks quickly) but want to let them free range a bit each day. i have seen posts saying evening is best for free range but that is when our hawks and owls are most active. Suggestions?? Is it best to just confine the chickens to the run?
