You can tell that I am a newbie from my onslaught of posts today. But just to understand my predator issue betters, I have to worry about predators at different times right? Hawks during the day and Raccoons at night? I also have a fenced in yard, does this help deter raccoons? If I lock my hens up every night, do I reasonably eliminate my raccoon and fox issue? And then I am just left with a hawk concern. I don't know how my buddy has done it but he has a near similar backyard to me and has no roof on his long (100ft) run. Locks the hens up at night. And hasn't lost anything.
