While reading the "how many animals do you have" thread, I noticed a trend. Lots of people were losing lots of chickens and other fowls. So this thread is dedicated to sharing tips about protecting our flocks.
Our ducks go in at night and they have access to the indoors all day long as well as a couple of small shelters outside. We've had a number of smaller hawks and a turkey vulture out flying around lately but so far so good. My only protection from them is the vigilance of the group in the hopes they run for cover before it's too late.
