You hear a lot of noise coming from your chicken coop and go to investigate. There just in front of your coop ramp is a… SNAKE!!! The name alone might strike fear into the heart of any caring chicken owner.
You might want to pretend that these animals don’t exist and that your flock is perfectly safe, but there are some animals out there like the naughty fox that see your flock as a delicious snack. Even though your flock may have many predators, don’t panic!
Chicken keeping can be difficult and stressful. But it doesn’t have to be. If you prepare well, you wouldn’t have to worry about any scurrying rats in your coop luring bigger predators to your precious flock.
Predators are a top concern for any chicken keeper. Predators can pose a threat to your coop day and night comment where you live (urban, suburban or rural). Fortunately, there are many ways to prevent these foes from attacking your precious flock.
There are only a few areas in Australia that Quolls call home, so they may not be a threat to your flock. If you do live in an area known for Quolls, you will have to take precautions against them without putting them or your flock in danger.
