Just figured that I'd throw this out there for everyone with it being spring in the top half of the planet. It has been really windy around here lately which has had some unforeseen consequences. I have had what looks like kite string or string from feed bags fly into the run from the neighbor's trash/yard. Not completely their fault since I know there are times that the trash gets gotten to before the collectors come after the families put out their cans in the morning. Anyway, two of my chickens have had their feet bound together with that string that ended up in their run. One was so bad that she couldn't move except by flapping her wings. When I cut the string off I saw that it had cut into her poor little legs pretty deeply so I put her in my breeding coop so that she can be seen by the others but can't be picked at until her legs heal. But it just goes to show that no matter how predator proof the runs can be, we still have other things that can get inside and harm our babies.
