    Has anyone ever tried playing a radio in the coop at night, tuned to human voices talking? I wonder if predators would at first be scared off but then acclimate to the sound and realize there are no humans? I am wondering what other people's experiences have been, and whether this is worth trying. Raccoons are my biggest offender. Thanks!
