My little bantams are staying outside tonight. They have a good sturdy mini shed/huge doghouse and a kennel reinforced with tons of extra wire, and I know it's secure, but I still keep thinking I'll only find bloody feathers tomorrow. Were you guys nervous when you first let your chickens stay out? Got any tips for keeping predators away? Here are some pics of my little chickies Ms Piggy and her little fluffy cheeks Pilot and Chickmunk Toes and Barry in the front, Bill and Roo in the back Prince Charming Diva The whole gang Blue the cat, plotting misdeeds.
