Here in Hawaii there really aren't any predators for free ranging chickens except maybe mongoose - but they're pretty small. I have three13 week old hens living in a coop with a temporary 4 foot fence around the structure that gives them about 15 feet of free space to roam. I eventually will let them out into the yard when they're a little bigger. The problem I have is other birds (pigeons, doves and Franklins) flying down and dining on my chicken's crumbles. The chickens are afraid of them because they're about the same size as they are. Any ideas about how to stop them from flying into the pen? My chickens don't fly out because I have clipped their wings.
