    Here is our solution to all the predators here in Tucson, Arizona. We put the coop inside a kennel and covered it with a tarp. And if you look closely, you will notice a baby monitor sitting on the chair so I can hear any trouble at night, lol. We are fortunate enough to have our coop right outside our laundry room door. Thus far, we have seen lots of racoons, coyotes and a bobcat on our property, so we were really worried about our chickens getting killed. So far, this is working and the only trouble we have had at night was 3 javelina trying to get into the compost bin. I love waking up to the sounds of our little flock in the morning, although my husband might beg to differ!

    Funny how predators act differently in different parts of the world. I have never had a problem with coon or weasels, only possums. They only caused problems with chicks though, never adults. But they were devasting when they did get in, lost several each time. That is what motivated me to build another coop and grow out pen that was predator proof.

    Bending linoleum up the wall a bit makes it eventually crack and you'll lose the intent of its use. My sister had linoleum on her floors going up the wall a bit and nailed to the wall with metal strips like they always did in 1950's house building and it cracks. She had to re-tile her kitchen, laundry room, and bathroom floors. I don't know that today's linoleums are any better now but something to think about.
