I have a real love hate relationship with this part of the forum. For a long time, I had the cute chicks, and the worries were confined to diseases. Now they are 13+ weeks, and in their coop, but now the predators are out there - in a big way. I feel so sorry for anyone who loses chickens to predators. Maybe if I had 100 all the same, I might feel a bit differently, but I have 22 with all individual personalities and quirks. And they are all named. Will I survive this? I need to go buy an electric fence.
