Everything Loves to Eat Chicken: A Guide to Securing Your Coop from Predators

Nobody wants to come home and find a crime scene in their coop.

Having recently suffered the loss of my entire flock of chickens, I devoted myself to researching ways to rebuild my coop more securely.

I wanted to help other chicken keepers avoid the same heartache I experienced, so I complied this table of predators and coop solutions.  The goal is to help folks in many different situations mix and match their approach to protecting their chickens from predators.

Hi Sandra! Thanks for your comment. You don’t need a massive backyard to have a few chickens. The most important things in my opinion are that they have access to fresh air, sunlight, dust bath material, a varied diet, and are safe and sheltered at night. How many square feet do you have available? Thanks!
