Fox stopper coop door

Post by Robbie » Sat Jan 16, 2016 10:15 pm

Think this would work? Obviously not for weasels but maybe bigger predators? The prongs are supposed to stick in the predator's back when they try to get in the coop door, and make them back out. Hmmmm........

First short video shows a chicken leaving, the second, going back in the coop.

Rip it out with teeth . Same way I've seen um rip/chew chain link fence .Not saying it wouldn't help deter or slow down a fox but I wouldn't bet MY birds on it .

@ross are you talking about the chain link fence like on the highway ROW? :-o
Why did a picture of a safe pop up in my mind? A safe would be unsafe. We all know the fox would figure out how to open it! :lol:
