They Are Never Safe

Chickens Poster1

There are times of the year and in certain locations that there is very little you can do to protect your flock of chickens other than sit on your deck with a shotgun.  The other half of last year’s flock was killed today while in what we thought was a secure coop – closed in.  Cement foundation, wired windows, new door.  Once the carnage is cleaned up the forensics will begin, maybe.  Having to deal with your hens being killed by something two years in a row is too much really.  Makes you never want to raise a chicken again.

  1. So sorry…this happened to me, too, about 6 months ago, and we have traps out, but we still haven’t caught the critter who dug a hole under the coop and tore back the foot of protective hardwire from out of the ground. I hope you can find the culprit.
