What's Killing My Chickens?: The Poultry Predator Detective Manual
This visual guide helps readers assess predator risk to poultry species, evaluate the scene of the crime after a predator intrusion, interpret clues such as tracks, trails, and signs, and understand predator habits in order to determine "likely suspects." It then offers preventive strategies to protect poultry from future predation, including eliminating points of entry to the coop and yard, removing attractants, using poultry guardians and lighting, and installing the most effective fencing for each particular threat. The book concludes with a mini-encyclopedia of possible culprits, ranging from birds, canines, and felines to rodents, reptiles, amphibians, and more.
