    Super cute, congrats on the new farm and new babies! Chickens are awesome pets and it's nice to have fresh eggs every morning I used to have a Buff Orpington in a small flock and she was super sweet.

    Just make sure that the coop is entry-proof, predators will take any chance they can get to break in and the smallest mistake like leaving a door unlatched can result in a wipe out.

    Congrats on the new farm!

    Second on the predator warning. Predators that haven left more or less dismembered bodies at my place: barn rats, feral cats, neighbor dogs, coyote, fox, raccoon, mink, great horned owl, fox snake. Beware of the skunk on the porch after dark!

    Is it paranoia when they really are out to get your birds?

    I have a recording of chickens clucking and crowing if you'd like it.
