    http://www.nationalband.com/leg.htm#992 I like the ones called plastic bandettes. I haven't had any problem with these on cleaned leg birds. I am not sure what I am going to do for the Cochins yet????

    I've been lucky with hawks, so far. I know that will change. I have resident hawks with an annual nest within 100 yards. My chickens are in a fenced area too big to cover, but they have a covered 8 x 12 area next to the pop door. I have seen them run for cover when the hawk flies low overhead. I don't leave them in the uncovered area until they are 12-15 weeks. Just waiting for the day some go missing.
    Just put fence around my1800sq ft garden and opened a hole so my chickens can clean it up for me. Too many weeds, I just started out this year and didn't keep it up!

    @wingstone - I appreciated it. Now considering a chicken coop made of bales. Just need to work out doors amd windows. Even if it lasts a year, I can always use it for compost or mulch. At your husbands price, I may switch to straw in my coop instead of shavings from TSC. It's only an extra couple minutes drive.

    @chad - I'm going to have to pass on the class. Work won't understand, but thanks for setting it up!
