Safety of chicken coops
The first cause of death to chickens is predators. Predators vary by area. You need to visit the coop several times a days. And to make sure that the chickens must be locked up at night for their own protection. A combination of wire and wood is ideal, with design considerations to combat predator attempts at entry. Otherwise, snakes can slide in through gaps, while other predators like raccoons, possums, foxes, and coyotes can chew through exposed wood.A predator-proof door latch will keep hens inside safe when you manually close the coop door. If for some reason you can't be there to close the coop at night, you can invest in an automatic coop door set on a timer.
