I’ve had the chickens in the new hen house and run for a couple of months now, but there are less chickens in the run than there should be!
I haven’t counted them in a while, but decided to today. I know there were 45 chickens in the run to begin with, but today there were only 39.
I check them every day and haven’t had any die in that time. A couple escaped in the first month, but they usually just come down to the house and wait for food. Don’t think a ground predator would have done it, as more than 6 would have disappeared, so my guess is maybe crows/buzzard. I’ll have to consider something across the top of the run.
