So we have 5 acres in central British Columbia. We would like to raise chickens for meat/eggs but as a mother of 2 young kids I'm worried that having chickens will attract predators - particularly bear and cougars. Bear are commonly sighted around here and our neighbours who have a llama ranch lose a few animals to cougars every year. Understandibly I'm worried about my kids...never let them out unsupervised or at dawn/dusk. Is having chickens just asking for trouble? Or would the cattle ranch on one side, the llama ranch on the other plus all the horses etc. around be more tempting than my chickens or children?
