I do not think I have mongoose in my area.If you see a mongoose in your yard, your chicks are in danger. They have a keen sense of smell, and hunt sounds of baby chicks. I just lost four chicks out of six to a mongoose. I saw a bloody chick's head sticking through the chicken wire. The mongoose ran away after he saw me.
It's ok. Thanks for the info!But, downside to Leghorns, they are not that social. I have 3 Faverolle girls and they are the sweetest things in the world. my favorite girl (a Faverolle) always comes running to me every time i enter the coop. They are so sweet!
Sorry about my posting, im doing to many posts XD.
How big would a coop need to be for 7 buff orpingtons? How big of a run for 7? In square ft plz.
