    My DH was in Lowe's today looking for netting to put over the top of our run. We had an owl walk into the coop last Wed. night and kill a pullet. The "outside" lady at Lowe's said she's had chickens for the last 20 years. She hasn't had a predator of any kind since she put a clock radio with RED numbers by her coops. She leaves it on a talk radio station so there's always sound.

    I had been thinking about getting one of those niteguard blinking lights that simulate eyes. But hey, a clock radio with red LEDs should do the same thing!

    Any opinions?

    Night Guard is no good. Predators will get use to it unless you move it every night, same could be said for the radio also.

    makes sense sure would be better than spending 30 dollars for the night watch red light thing (i assume you are talking a bout the one in backyard poultry mag)
