off topic - as long as the bees are clustered and there isn't much to do I guess a little off topic chatter won't offend anyone too much.

So how do you guys keep your chickens safe from predators. My guys love to graze, the first thing they do out of the chicken tractor is go for anything green to eat. Then they scratch for bugs the rest of the day. So I hate to keep them all caged up all the time - unfortunately the bobcats and coyotes hate it too.

No eggs right now - all my layers got eaten by the bobcat (who no longer lives in this county). Have 25 Oct. 1 hatched colored egg layers growing up though. Just hate seeing them living in a cage with no where to scratch and nothing green to eat.
