    Safe place is in the run. Free range you will lose a chicken or chickens sooner or later. Cedars help to stop flying predators but make it easier for the ground based predators to sneek in close for a quick grab. You have to decide if its worth it or not to you.

    I free range in a treed area. We have hawks occasionally but have not had an issue. [​IMG] You can see the trees behind the beast and his minions. I worry, but would rather have super happy healthy chickens than keeping them in their run. It has no grass. Our main predators are at night. So I have ft Knox coop 2.0. [​IMG] These are the eggs they hatched from :) I was really hoping they might be feather sexable. [​IMG] [​IMG] Because if so I have 3 pullets. Woohoo! Knowing my luck though I've got 4 Roos
