"My neighbor had made a heavy-duty
tractor with hardware cloth etc. and
it was pretty heavy. The raccoons got into it anyhow and ate every...
single... adult... chicken. How you do keep predators away?
We have come to the
conclusion that the risk is worth the value for better quality eggs. If
the predator pressure gets too high then maybe we'll build a Fort Knox
type of chicken coop and bring bugs to the chickens which will involve
another level of time and effort.
