In the Brooder
- Mar 18, 2013
I had a coop chicken door built. Apparently not strong enough. Something crawled under the chicken wire fence built for their play pen and got inside. Could have been any animal since we live outside of town. But 14 Chickens!! Ugh what could eat so many????? The hole was kind of big so I am thinking fox. Mink would have been smaller. And it didn't take them far, just outside the fence. Feathers were everywhere. So I concreted the entire area up. But I have one playpen built in front and only let them out for a few hrs in the day. Wondering how I keep them safe from daylight predators. I know foxs n coons rarely go out but what if they are hungry? What do yall do to build safe pens?
