Recently, my chicken coop was attacked by a local neighborhood cat…this happened three times over the span of four days. We tried many things to keep the cat away but nothing seemed to work. The cat started off trying to pull different doors open to get in, when that did not work he became very determined to get inside and even pulled part of the wood paneling off the side of the coop to get in. In total we lost all but three of our chickens.
Currently we are in the rebuilding process, but to help protect your urban farm here are some tips about how to protect your urban farm from predators.
