Our city neighborhood is full of raccoons. One morning a few weeks ago my boys and I actually saw 5 raccoons together on our deck in broad daylight. When it snows, we see prints. Sometimes we see them in the trees. We plan to get our coop and 3 hens in a few weeks. We're buying the coop already built. It has a run attached. The coop part looks very sturdy, but the run is small chicken wire. My question: Knowing about all these raccoons, will it be safe to have the chickens out in the run during the day? Will it just be a massacre? What would we need to do to make this work? I realize there are no guarantees with a smart predator like a raccoon, so I'm not sure how to proceed. We are completely new to this, and welcome your advice.
