For now at least, we’ve given up on keeping the Dominickers in the portable coops on another part of the farm. We just couldn’t keep them safe from hawk attacks
We loaded up the coops and moved them. “Portable,” by the way, is debatable. These things are heavy and awkward to lift.
We combined the survivors into one coop and we’ll use the other one as a brooder.
They seem to be enjoying their new location, and it’s so close to our house that we don’t think hawks will bother them here.
We don’t plan to move the coop again. Instead we’ll just move the fencing, rotating them through the gardens in the immediate area.
Hoping we won’t need a Plan C.
