    We will be moving to Eastern OK in the spring from AR. My hens were killed by a raccoon and a opposum. I'm looking forward to starting again with a more secure coup. I sure do miss them.

    Hi :welcome
    Glad you could join the flock! Sorry to hear you lost your hens to a predator attack :hugs Losing them is a very sad thing and I know just how you feel, I've shed many a tear over lost chickens.
    Hope your move goes well for you and you get a new flock started. Drop by the predator section of the forum for hints and tips on making your new flock safe. Here is the link https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/13/predators-and-pests

    Be sure to ask any questions you may have, everyone here to help. Enjoy BYC
    Wishing you the very best of luck :frow
