In the last two weeks I've lost a rooster to a coon. My two ducks to a weasel and last night my six chicks were eaten by something that chewed a hole through their house to get too them. We've had the coon crawling all over our coop and they are chewing their way in. Does anyone have any ideas before I loose any more ? Tonight I'm putting my chickens in a dog carrier to protect them.

A night scope and something that goes bang perhaps.

Trap and dispose. Then trap again and again. They are fixated on your birds and will have to be dealt with. Then consider electric fencing/netting.

Sounds like your using chicken wire. Gotta have a safe coop. You can get a live trap & trap the predator then one bullet in the head works. Then take the carcass aways from your coop to dispose of it. I suggest half inch hardware cloth to secure the coop.
