Marl we let ours free range during the day. We do have foxes and coyotes, but they aren't a problem during the day. At night they are locked up.
Can I Pull A Chicken Coop?

Right on Wagon, I understand. We live on a river, a nature corridoor and apparently the word got out to them foxes and hawks too . One fox came in right around mid- day, and swooped up a hen right in front of us.

We haven't lost any to hawks. I wish we could leave the dogs out while the chickens were loose, but they like the taste of chicken too much.

I hear ya Wagon, but we trained our husky to guard the chickens. Never in a million years would I have thought that was do-able.

Our big dog I think would do it. The other two no way. The new dog tries to get them thru the fence. I am about to give him a lesson in manners. All I have to do is catch him.

How do you get them to go into lockup??

And yes, the 1254 pulled it. I had a little bit of a traction problem (the wheels on the coop don't do much so I was pulling it on skids) but overall I call it a success.

That really came out nice. You need some ag tires to help you with traction.

Man, I'd love to be a chicken at your house! That's a cool place to live!

If you just bang on the coop and get the birds to flyin', it'll pull just fine.

That turned out real well, glad the 1254 pulled it. Those chickens are gonna love their new place :-)
