Keep Your Chickens Safe On Halloween! [Podcast]

Halloween is a great time for humans, but it can be downright scary for backyard chickens.


Kids, dogs, and candy can wreak havoc on your carefully-raised and tended hens, and possibly lead to a reduction in egg production. In some cases, you might lose your entire flock.


In this episode of What The Cluck?! we talk about how to keep your flock safe when trick or treaters come rolling around.


In this episode, you’ll learn:


  • The one thing you NEED to do on Halloween to make sure your flock stays safe
  • Why predators are a bigger concern during this time than any other
  • How to make sure your flock stays out of the candy and away from wrappers
