We have a coop that is scheduled for re-building, my friend & mentor has decided that this coop is totally unsafe." Your coop is more of an enclosed run. We need to build a secure house for your chickens." Sunday morning at 4AM, a racoon climbed inside the chicken's hutch, and killed my cockerel, mortally wounded my 3YO Araucana hen, and stripped my roo of his tail. I'm angry - my hubby has refused to allow a quality secure coop to be built, thinking chicken wire & a quilt was fine. He now realizes he was wrong, and will allow my friend to donate the materials & her labor to the rebuilding of a secure chicken house. Hubby can go away for the day while my friend & her hubby come & help ME build an acceptable chicken coop.
