I haven't bought my chickens yet, but I'm busy mentally building my tractor and permanent pen. I read something about weasels on the forum yesterday and suddenly, I recalled our experience with them years ago as a boy. Those critters are merciless and bloodthirsty. They got into my pigeon coop and killed a lot of my birds back then. Has anyone found a way to keep them out short of cladding every seam, corner and joint with sheetmetal and providing tight fittings on doors and windows? The list of predators just keeps growing: rat snakes, foxes - both red and gray, coons, feral cats, hawks, weasels, stray dogs...geez I'm beginning to wonder if it's all worth it.
