I don't have any chickens yet, but have already built a 6'x12' run out of chain link fencing topping it with same right behind our house. We have wire fencing underneath. We have almost all of the predators on the chicken predator list in our neighborhood, including mountain lions, plus bears. I currently have 2 dogs: 100 lb Akita & 24 lb Nordic Spitz. Last week, the smaller dog got attacked by a pair of mountain lions near dusk. Luckily he survived with only whiplash & some puncture marks, & my husband was able to scare the lions off with a gun before they attacked the Akita. However, I am now concerned that if I have both chickens and dogs, that the lions will think I have an open buffet. Can any of you give me advice? I want to keep my dogs & add some chickens. Can I safely do it?
