Keeping Chickens Safe

Here is What You Can Do to Keep Your Chickens Safe

  • First, understand that any actual free-ranging of chickens is a risk. To minimize that risk, a trained dog or you nearby can help.
  • Second, be sure to use the latches on the coop to secure the chicken door and the nesting box door, especially over night. 
  • Third, take a quick look inside the coop before chickens go in at night.
  • Fourth, inspect the ground around the coop and run and fill in any holes that have been dug by predators. 
  • Fifth, realize that coops in heavily wooded areas are susceptible to smaller animals that may eat through coops. Inspection of the coop on a regular basis will be key since it usually takes days to weeks for a breakthrough.
