Hello there. I’ve come across Backyard Chickens many times over the last year but haven’t joined until today. I had a mixed flock of 10 sweet, beautiful chickens. They were just over a year old when I lost them all to a daytime raccoon attack on March 31. I’m devastated by the loss. Their run is predator proof. They had a 70X30 yard to enjoy during the day with overhead netting to protect them from hawks. We thought raccoons were nocturnal. We love keeping chickens and have already started again with new chicks. We figure we have 8-10 weeks to make the yard safe before they go outside. We will install a hardware cloth apron just like we have on the coop so the raccoons can’t dig under. We don’t know how to keep them from climbing, thinking about electrifying the fence. I’m hoping I can get some advice on this forum.
