    Bobcat thing, dam. We had a hawk fly right in the coop. Wife scared the crap out of it. Possum and coyotes trying to tunnel in now. Bastards.
    The secret to learning how to fly is this, you must throw yourself at the ground and miss.

    The bobcat was the worst. You can't imagine the carnage. Feathers and parts everywhere. Early on with these Bielefelders, shortly before they started laying I had a coyote. He snagged 2 at different times. I saw both, but she was so fast there was nothing I could do to stop it. She looked to be about starving to death, poor thing. I haven't seen the coyote since.

    We put ours in a coop and the neighbors chickens got ravaged by a pack of coyotes. We went searching and found the feast area. Feathers, legs, etc everywhere. Big hawk got a couple from them also. Really pissed my wife off she raised all but 3 for the neighbors. Stock from our roosters and hens. I think like brine shrimp, everything thinks chickens are delicious.
