Next summer my husband and I were hoping to raise some chickens and rabbits. We live out in the bush and although we don't have a problem with moose or bears coming into town, I would assume that foxes and lynx's would be knocking on our front door... or the front door of the chicken coop/ rabbit cage. I don't know if anyone else in Alaska raises chickens or rabbits, but I'm sure there are a few. So I was just wondering how do you build a predator proof cage? Coming from the lower 48 I sometimes had problems with coyotes and raccoons, so to ward them off I build an extra barbed-wire fence around the original coop. Would this work for foxes and lynx as well? Also do you keep them through the winter and if so how do you ensure they stay warm?
