what's the best way to keep hungry varmints away from my chickens? Answered
We have a new flock of Buff-Orpingtons that we got as chicks last fall- they're roosting in the greenhouse and range in an enclosure during the day that is surrounded by an electric fence. I'm concerned that as the weather warms and the resident coyote, skunk, fox, coon and possum population gets active we are exposing the gals to a potential chicken holocaust. Will the electric fence be enough? I've come to respect the ingenuity and perseverance of varmints. Input please!
