    Just starting out this year. Didn't take long to learn a hard lesson about predators and cheap coops. Started over and doing well.

    Welcome to BYC. Glad you decided to join our flock. Many of us have learned the hard way the value of building our coop/runs like Fort Knox and using hardware cloth instead of chicken wire. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. What kind of chickens do you have?

    Welcome to BYC [​IMG] So sorry to hear about the the bumpy start! There is a section in the Learning Center on chicken predators and pests and how to protect your flock, with some great tips. Hope things go well for you this time round.
