I have three heavily wooded ares. Behind us is a huge forest of several hundred acres. Right now, we have 3 Barred Owls living in this area. I don't mind them. They keep the snakes down, and I fort up my chickens just prior to dusk. Being nocturnal, the owls have never bothered me yet. The coop is inside a covered run, so the chickies are safe. I've shot several large rattlesnakes out back. I have little children, I can not abide the risk snakes pose. JA
