What's Killing My Chickens? : The Poultry Predator Detective Manual
by Gail Damerow


Overview - For backyard chicken keepers and large-scale farmers alike, the single greatest challenge is protecting poultry from predators. What's Killing My Chickens? is the ultimate guide to identifying the culprit behind a coop intrusion and ensuring safety for the flock. Often, by the time an attack is discovered, the predator has already left the scene. Best-selling author and chicken expert Gail Damerow uses the style of a detective manual to teach readers how to follow clues such as tracks, trails, scat, and other signs to pinpoint the attacker. Profiles describe key habits of the possible predators -- ranging from raptors to rodents, foxes to bullfrogs -- and provide the best techniques for blocking their access to the coop and yard, including removing attractants, using poultry guardians and lighting, and installing the most effective type of fencing. This empowering book offers essential knowledge, and peace of mind, for every chicken keeper.
