    Hello...thanks for the add. Long time listener, first time caller haha. We lost our first small flock a couple months ago, thanks to a racoon (we think). I built a new, safer coop, and just bought a pair of calico cochins (rooster and hen). So, that's were we are....thanks for having us.

    Welcome to BYC. Electric fencing and box traps help control the predator problem.

    Sorry for your losses. You may want to check out the 'predator threads,' on BYC for advice on preventing or eliminating them.
