We stopped by a Peavey Mart (farm supply store) to grab some chick feed on sunday, and one of the clerks started asking about our chicks, and how we intend to protect them from pedators. We explained our coop and pen concept, and the motion sensor light we planned on having in addition to a few other preventative measures we will take. He mentioned that his family farmed meat chickens for years, and always had a couple of Pigs in with the Chickens to protect them, as he never trusted his dogs. he said they never once had a death by predator, and he is sure its because the weasels and fox's were scared of the pigs! How do you think this would work? We were wanting to get a pig soon anyhow, but can i keep him in the same pen as the Chickens at night, with a little house of his own?
