    So I laid 16" x 16" pavers all around the attached run and I secured 1/2 " hardware cloth to the floor of the coop. The wire is covered by weed block fabric, shavings and Sweet PDZ for easy clean up. The run is dirt. I think I have done everything I can to protect the girls short of mounting a machine gun station with spot lights.

    Yeah I can just see it now -- searchlights panning the coop walls, sirens triggered by motion sensors, machine gun mounted on your back deck -- and someone on this thread will say, "yes, but . . ."

    And don't forget the guy a few BYC posts ahead of us who built a scaffolding tower to survey his property for coyotes with rifle in hand!

    Sounds like a plan to me also :)

    I would go one step further and teach the chickens some self defense and they could have an armed look out posted 24/7. This may not be such a good plan if they do not want you to collect eggs though .. lol.

    That's awesome. How did you get that chick to do that? I managed to strap some ammo to a pullet, but I can't get her to carry the rifle.
