Chicken Predators

Chicken Predators -Foxes, Coyotes, Hawks, and Pets

You wake up one morning only to find out that your laying hens or your best meat chickens are missing a head, limb or are missing completely. Sadly, this is a common occurrence in some communities where raising chickens was thought to be safe. Often residents are dissuaded from maintaining their own flock due to chicken predators.

Urban Chicken Coop Design

I built this urban chicken coop with the urban chicken keeper in mind. I also wanted something that is more appealing and is semi-mobile.

The chicken coop is an A-frame style with 2 levels to maximize space. Although I like to let my chickens out of their coop during the day, this coop has enough room to comfortably house 4 full size hens.
