Sad day... A very large 2m lace monitor had been visiting our house and stealing the odd egg. Today it took one of our beautiful bantams and dragged it away to eat. We are deverstated and wondered if others had ever had this issue and if so want did they do. The chickens are safe in the coop at night but we had been letting them out to free range during the day. Would love to keep them free range but don't any more babies to get taken. Any ideas?????
