Chicken Kill I'm designing my chicken coop now, but I thought about the pests and predators! We have some rats and some stray cats roaming around. Please give me some advice about designing my coop that is safe from predators? I'm thinking about placing some traps in the yard, but my chicks and chickens might get caught. I'm also thinking about a guard dog, but ours ate a chicken once (poor chicken)! Please help! Many thanks in advance! My future chickens thank you also!
