    The guinee started living on the roof eves and I couldn't get them in pen at night. I clipped some wings to keep em off roof. Big mistake they got eaten by fox over time. No more clipped wings. Coax everybody into coop at night . I will be more vigilant this year...

    Welcome to BYC - understand that the chickens will also be vulnerable to predation.

    Alright [​IMG] it's great to have you joining the BYC flock [​IMG]





    Wow I guess you had to learn the hard way about clipping the wings [​IMG]


    BYC has a great learning center and it is free [​IMG]
