3 days ago a racoon family got in and killed all my hens. They had all just started laying and 2 of them I had raised from chicks It's really heartbreaking to look out my kitchen window and not see them in their run. We had been locking them in their coop at night and letting them out in the morning, they were in a secure run we thought. It looks like the racoon ripped right though the tough chicken wire we had used. Now I'm trying to figure out if I want to get more peeps now or wait a while. It's still a little tough to think about going through this again.
