ALM bands & Rex

Here are my new bands of Annie Laurie McDowell and my current garden buddy Rex.

Rex was the lone survivor of a raccoon invasion and slaughter that offed all her sister chickens--note to self: "chicken wire" is not meant for chickens. Since she is lonely she's been hanging with me the last few days in the garden. Rex approves of ALM!

Poor little Rex. Yeah, chicken wire is useless cr*p that allows birds to be horribly torn up alive by predators reaching through it. 1/2" hardware cloth is the way to go, & I use it on BOTH sides of the wood, at that. Never lost a pet (& yeah, my birds are pets) in 25+ years.

Awww Rex is so cute. Hens are very social (so is our roo)

Chicken wire is great....for keeping chickens in.

My chicken tips:

1/2" hardware cloth anchored every few inches with screws and "washers" (beer caps work well for this)

A wire apron on the outside of the coop/run

Poor Rex! I'm so sorry the raccoon got his siblings. You just want to hug him, don't you? Congratulations on your ALmD. I hope you enjoy her! Kim
