Can Raccoons dig under your run ?
If it is not very deep they can. but they are more likly to claw chew threw the fencing first weak grad fencing wont hold them out for long.
fix it by placing rocks around the fence.
Will gravel around the out side of the run stop them or will they dig though that as well ..
Gravel mixed with Larger rocks and they can't. I dug a trench around mine filled it with large rocks gravel and dirt he aint going under.
Very nice thank you for the good advise . I am a little worried about it I think the people next to me have a raccoon that is living on top of there wood shed and the shed is just on the other side of the fence from my coop .
You could always use a trap and catch the animal then there would not be a proablem.
Quote:Yes they can! Never under estimate a raccoon, I think they would crack a safe given a chance.
I know they eat eggs, but chickens too?
Quote:Yes... chickens too....I saw a chicken a coon chewed off the head and scooped out the insides clean!!!!
Coons will not only eat eggs, but kill every bird in your flock given the chance. Had a family kill 20+ in one night.
