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 essential guide to identifying the culprit and ensuring safety for the flock.
The predator has often left the scene when an attack is discovered.

Predator profiles describe the key habits of each and 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.
