I'm new to the chicken game and need a one week solution to a problem. We got six chickens 4 months ago and then two chickens 2 months ago. One of the two, Amelia, is a scissor beak chicken. We had a 25' x 50' dog pen that wasn't being used so we built an 8' x 8' coop with a 10' run inside the pen. All the chickens share a coop, but I still have a flock of 6 and a flock of 2. The 2 have to stay inside the coop in the morning till I let the 6 out of the run to free range. Then the 2 can eat and go wander. We live on 5 acres of woods and thought we had the chickens well protected with the coop, run, and 6' fence around it all. Until this morning I didn't think a hawk could take a full sized chicken, I thought they were too big. I lost my Cordelia to a hawk this morning. The plan now is to put a poultry net over the 25' x 50'pen and not let them free range anymore. So, finally, my problem. Until I can get the netting up the chickens will be confined to the coop and run. Amelia has to eat a watery mash because she can't pick up her food. If I leave all 7 to the run the big chickens not only won't let the 2 out to eat, but it would be hard to get in and out to give Amelia her mash twice a day without the others getting out. I have a small run that I can put the 2 in for the week with a tiny coop where they lived the first 2 weeks we had them. If I put them in there though it will stress them out and I'm afraid we will lose the progress we've made and my big girls won't let them back in after the net is up. Any ideas, information, thoughts, all welcome.
