    Hello im from san antonio and i would like to introduce myself. I have gotten a lot of great info from this site and hope i can post in case i have any questions, any replys toward my questions would be greatly appreciated as i am a novice when it comes to chickens. i just had 38 baby chicks killed by a stray cat, one survived. i just ordered 12 buffs, 12 rhode islands, 12 barred rocks and 25 cornish x rock. I guess i have to completely enclose my coop and run from here on out.

    I'm having to enclose everything myself. I think my problems a hawk family. Not to mention coons, possums, and cyotes. My cat will stalk the chickens but only wants to play. He lets them get away before he even gets close.
