  1. Hi there. Really enjoy ur tips. We have built our with many predator -proof safeguards. The info we obtained from keepers have helped greatly. We used spring-loaded hooks & latches all around. Racoon proofing. We also used herring fish net all around & over the roof of the coop run. Also hardwire on all openings as well as spring loaded latches on all the shutters. The coop is also 3 feet off the ground, with the dust bath area underneath also covered with net. We have been very lucky so far with only a few bothersome ravens. My girls scramble to the coop run when alarmed. I am teaching them to run for cover with a whistle. We are new at this and believe we are doing very well. Thanks for all the helpful information.
