Joint Effort

This coop is connected by a wire tunnel to a large run next door in a neighbor's yard. The owner is reflected in the glass. The neighbor also has a coop connected to the run.

It was at this site that I didn't hear about any raccoon problems. One of the owners opined that there is so much cat and dog food in the neighborhood that the raccoons have gotten lazy. After all, catching a chicken requires some work. All the other coop owners I talked to had a raccoon story.

Cool chicken coop with an ingenious way of getting the chickens to a pen. Cute story too.

I like their innovative way of protecting pets from anything and everything with the enclosed tunnel. Raccoons are so smart and can be very aggressive. A friend had his dog severely injured recently when a raccoon entered via a pet door to help himself to the food. The dog thought he could tackle anything and incurred $315 in vet bills!

The animal version of the luxury, better than small cage, indeed... :-)
