    Where I live ,North Granby,Ct. I let my chickens free range . But lately I'm changing my thinking. We have fox,hawks, weasels
    and coyotes and I lose a lot. They have a huge run and I'm going to keep them in that but damn that open field, woods
    ect. looks good to them and I give in. I need some counseling.

    I've been considering electric netting from Premier Supplies. I have the charger. The netting is movable. It would be a good solution, but the netting is too expensive for me ATM.

    Liz I have considered the PM netting but I'm just not sure how effective it is.
    You would need some kind of netting over the top for the haws and I see that as a real pita
    In trying to move it.
    They are a first class Co. and I talked to a rep. and he said they swore by it.
    Maybe this spring,right Now we have about a foot of snow on the ground and some more to come.

    I kept goats confined with it. If it will keep goats in it will keep critters out. You're right about the hawks, though. Covering it would be a real pain.

    Oh, I didnít notice the leg feathers. Nice looking breed. I had no idea they existed.

    I hear ya Jay, I’m frequently tempted to let them out. They rush to the door of the run every time I put the feed in and I do feel bad about cooping them up. Better mad than dead I suppose.
