I have been reading posts on here for some time now, but finally decided to join after a predator attack two nights ago. Hoping to rebuild from that... (I posted in the predators section to get some feed back!) I grew up with chickens, and couldn't wait to own them as a grown up. One of our first projects when we bought our house was to build a coop! That was a little over five years ago... We have dealt with various injuries and illnesses since, but this recent attack was the first real predator attack and has almost wiped our flock out. I have two birds hopefully recovering in the basement-down from a flock of 12! So... Hoping to rebuild-both coop and flock. I am tempted to even try sneaking the eggs we have left in the fridge under one if the remaining hens!! (We did have a rooster, so they may be fertile.) We'll see though... Just nice to find other chicken lovers who understand our pain here!!
