    I never thought chickens could be so intelligent. My 4 month old golden wyandotte keeps escaping out of our run/coop. As soon as I think I have everything secured I look outside and boom no chicken. I have 5 more that don't even care but this little girl is super smart. Anyone else have this problem with any of there hens?

    Food for thought - if she is able to get out, others (predators) will be able to get in. Perhaps if you post a couple pictures of your setup we can help you identify the weak spot(s)

    Yes that is the thing I was very worried about. We have a lot of raccoon's around my house. I did find what she was getting out, and haven't had anymore escapes.
