Other than the crows or ravens which stole some day old chicks we have been pretty lucky. Today however things changed!! Everyone was healthy when we left for work, the meaties are 9 weeks old and about 7-8 pounds.... they have a hut that they sleep and eat in and a pen inside our fully fenced pasture... welded wire fencing with barb wire around the whole top. Birds are contained from roaming too far in the pasture with chicken wire.... this was not intended to do anything but contain the chickens.... My layer flock is fine behind their welded wire/chicken wire run. lambs and goat... fine pigs ... well they are obviously fine 3 month old geese and turkeys and a 5 week old turkey roam the area freely, they are fine we have three week old baby meaties in the second half of the hut only seperated by chicken wire to keep them enclosed/inside.... they are fine Within the meaty pen we have three birds with bites out of their butts.... One bird is completely eaten..... just its feet, bones, some connective tissue and the wings are left.... feathers everywhere.... this was a roo, I found is comb!! We have eagles, hawks, bob cat, foxes, coyotes, racoons, knk, bear....not too many dogs about this was broad daylight!! Thoughts? We think we will leave our ageing shepherd out while we are at work pending everyones's thoughts... ETA.. it's ravens!! thoughts other than using a tent stle gazebo to keep them safe?
