    just a note to remember take a walk around and look for any gaps or any way that a predator can or could get in to run and coop and i mean fill all gaps and might ask a friend to walk around and ask them try to find a way in to my chickens and then close it up . finding your dead girls the next morning sucks bad and where did it get in at . hope you can catch my point.

    Thanks for the reminder. Seems like I'm constantly working on my coop so I always need to double check when I change something.

    I just might do something similar... my neighbor also raises chickens. I think I might have her come over and "inspect" my coop for weaknesses. That way hopefully she won't overlook something I would miss.

    Great post... thanks!

    Sorry to hear that [​IMG]
    Rats can fit in a hole the size of a quarter and mice the size of a nickle isn't it?
