My biggest problem was a bear. He ripped the hen house door latch out after trying to open the outside entry doors to the nesting boxes. I was surprised at how much wood he could take out in a single bite. First night he took 5 hens, less then a week later he came back for two more. I had screwed the door shut with five 2.5Ē screws, might as well left the door open for him! He pulled it open like he was using a latch. That time he took two hens. Then I put up an electric fence. I donít know if that is what worked or the fact Dept of Fish & Wildlife shot a bear two miles from my house that was raiding honey bee hives. He never got any more chickens anyway!

My mom raised layers and roasters.  The roasters would fly into the pig pen and go after what ever they could find. Then the pigs would go after this birds. Feathers all over the place, 2 or 3 pigs on a bird , did not turn out to good for the birds.
