Buze (a kind of hawk) used my free range chicken flock as a convenient supermarket - got through 30 ish birds in a season. They are protected so I couldn't shoot 'em. How are LGD against birds of prey?

Sweet video called Origins which sets forth a broad overview of part of our decline away from, you guessed it, our origins. Mostly preaching to the choir here but there may be details of interest and could be useful in bringing the whole crisis to the attention of sleepy, or defensive, well-meaning friends and relations...

Re shippable core: how much would it weigh?
by the Formidable Vegetable Sound System. Cheerful, swingin': do check it out! I've got it next to Mavis Staple's 'You Are Not Alone' on the cd player. Works for me....

Paul’s ‘pastured poultry in paddocks’ is obviously the way to go. So, one has floorless, moveable coops for them to shelter and lay eggs in, narrow enough to get through gates. Am for that, but…don’t you people have proper winter in Montana? Am in France in the foothills of the Massif Central, just about parallel with y’all. At least 3 months of the year there is either snow on the ground or it’s real wet. So one moves the floorless coops to a new paddock but there’s no place that isn’t covered with hard snow or v. wet pasture. Not warm/dry enough. Back to replacing the floors and cleaning out the coops in winter and/or wet periods unless I’ve missed something……? Haven’t added wood rot (coops treated with linseed oil on exterior) but that’s implied as well if they are to rest directly on the snow-covered, wet, ground….
Would really appreciate any ideas ‘cause do note happy, healthy hens are marvellously productive and eventually, tasty.
