I have seen this posted before but am posting as a reminder because of my close call. Last night I went to lock the coop and it had been dark for about 30 minutes already. On my way out I heard an awful noise and ran out to the coop. Terrified chicken sound is terrible. Chickens were running out and guess what was clinging to the inside wire/wall? A coon. Haven't seen one around but obviously they are around. It got away before I could dispatch. All I had with me was a board. Luckily my chickens escaped harm-Rosie lost a few feathers. If I had been a couple of minutes later I would have had a dead chicken. I will definitely be changing my habits with nightime lock up. Set a trap but didn't catch anything.
