Last week we sadly had our first intruder murder all our 13 chickens... blah. So disappointed. We hadn't had a chance yet to put the netting over the run, and a raccoon ( I assume because the chickens heads were pulled off, well, the two bodies left). We had another flock we sold a couple years back that lived in the same run, just with netting over the run, and never had an issue... ever. We were buying time in reality, very sad for the life lost. We ended up burning down the old house-- the scene of the crime. It was great release for me, but now we have ordered more chicks we will receive soon and must rebuild. We are in Kansas, and it gets quite warm. We are fairly sure of the plan for the new house, but my question is: Should we use the same run and build a new house inside? Would a raccoon come back and be persistent enough to rip a roof, then rip through the window screens? What is the best screening for windows? Is relocation necessary (I want to relocate the coop entirely, my husband thinks it is in the best spot and wants to keep it where it is). So, what do you think. Any advice is much appreciated. Thank you!
