In the Brooder
- Mar 14, 2013
Hi, so I'm confused about whether or not we should be worrying about racoons getting to our chickens during daylight hours? We lock them up in the predator-proof run and coop at night, but I usually let them out into their larger run from 9 am-7 p.m. Today though, I was in the yard and two big raccoons wandered across the neighbor's yard, across the street and into our alley right next to the coop. I of course put the chickens up, but now feeling insecure about letting them be in their larger run unattended during the day. Do you think the coons would bother chickens during daylight hours??
