I knew the economy was in a recession. Heck i knew there were lots of folks on unemployment or even past that. But never did i believe that some folks could or would bust into my coop (keep in mind you can fit 20 people inside it comfortably standing or sitting) and nab my flock . I would have to say Man has been my worst predator. Really the logistics are pretty amazing. the coop leads to the yard which is not easy for people to get in or out of, doable but not easy. Probably why i had 3 left. he/she/they stole 36 of my babies all in one morning. No bodies, no feathers, no blood. They quite literally cleaned me out. Soo, were starting over with locks and security and such.
