What small predators eat chickens?

I want to know what will be enemies to my chickens.


Answer by  rbiales (3441)

Chickens will be eaten by pretty much any omnivorous or carnivorous animal that a chicken or any part of a chicken will fit into its mouth. Rats and mice will eat chicken toes and any member of the weasel family will go directly for a living chicken's internal organs through the vent.

Weasels and Foxes will eat your Chickens. Use small gauge chicken wire in your coop because Weasels can get through holes that are smaller than their bodies.

Foxes, weasels, hawks, owls, and opposums are likely culprits to be eyeing up your chicken coop. Ask a local farmer for information on they types of predators in your area. I am sure he will be glad to also provide you with some ideas on preventing these attacks to your poultry.
