Keeping your Chickens Safe at Night with those little LEDs oh so Bright
Most of us like to eat chicken, but even if you don this may come as no surprise: everything else out there does. So, if you like me and like to keep a small flock Dianabol Atlas-Dom of free range chickens around just for fresh eggs (and the occasional fresh, chemical free fryer) I have no doubt that keeping them off the drive thru dinner menu for every fox, dog, hawk, mink and ferret that you run into can be an exercise in futility. And if you live out in the country like me it can be darn near impossible. Don belive me? Just ask my chickens: ).
Several flocks later I have learned that the only way to keep the daytime cruisers from grabbing a quick feathery snack is to keep them in an enclosed fenced in area, preferably underneath a large shade tree (so the hawks don swoop down and grab one). This way every morning I can let them out of the coop and let them poke around a few hundred square feet of grass without worrying about the four footed variety of hunters. But I not here to tell you how to protect your flock against those daytime Jonny come lately That easy needed there. Nope, I here to help you against those really sneaky creatures ones that keep you up at night. Hopefully this ass kicking from Kentucky Bum will give you some piece of mind by showing you how to cut down the number of night time snack raids to your coop and give you a few more peaceful night sleep.
I engineered this solution from a fact that I read somewhere that most of the really nasty things that sneak around at night are freaked out by blinking LEDs (I had a Deca Durabolin Jak Brac problem with ferrets and minks [the nastiest of the nasties]). It said the lights appear to them as other predator eyes. Besides, what good are they if you can use them inside the coop to keep things out? Here how I made a good work around solution.
Tools you will need:
Multi meter that can read DC volts and show polarity
Wire "Comprar Gh Jintropin" snips and strippers
[Maybe] a soldering gun solder.
Parts you need:
Blinky LED lights (I have red ones, but if other colors work let me know) 10 30 of light weight, low voltage 2 strand shielded wire
A handful of small wire nuts (the kind you get with any light fixture). Most of the circuit boards that run LEDs can run on any voltage from 6 to 15 volts DC (battery power) but try to find some that run on 9 volt batteries because it easier to get access to the wires that the battery plugs into [unless you have a soldering gun or don mind replacing batteries every other week]. A while back I got on eBay and found somebody selling a bunch of surplus 9 volt circuit boards with blinking LEDs; 25 boards for $8 + SH (Sweet!).
Red Equipoise For Cutting lights are a nice touch for a couple of reasons. Your own night sight remains intact. Color blind predators don't care what color the light is, but it might make a two legged thief slow down in fright!
In my own scrap pile there are some LEDs with integrated flashing circuits. They all are red. In USA we buy them at Radio Shack stores as single components. I've connected one blinky with one standard LED in series and had them both blink. (Sorry I don't "Anabola Steroider Norge Lagligt" have a schematic on hand or I'd share it.)
Have fun and enjoy those chickens!
I don't get how red LEDs will confuse a predator as most nocturnal animals don't see in colour.
A predators and some vermin species eyes DO glow red and cattle and sheep will glow green if you shine a lamp at them in the dark, I know this from experiments with lamping rabbits
I very much doubt that any amount of LEDs will keep your chickens safe from hungry predators. We have had foxes attack a goose right in our yard only a few feet from the house.
If you have a problem with mink and ferrets you should get a slate or cage trap and keep it set beside your run at all times. we use a slate trap and regularly catch rats and have on occasion caught the large black rats that will kill young birds. The slate traps are good as they don't kill the animal so you can release any harmless critters that wander in to them.
If anyone is interested in building a slate trap i Comprar Gh Jintropin can take a series of pics of the one my Dad made.
Like I wrote, I have no idea why red blinky LEDs scare them, but [like I also wrote] there a few companies that make a business of selling them as anti predator defense. Like I also wrote, my problem with minks and ferrets seems to have abated (for now). I put them up about 4 years back and haven't been raided since so it seems to me that they are working as advertised. That's not to say they just haven't moved on, or that I may have to eat my words come mid winter (when I have the most problems) but for now they are the only thing that seems to have worked.
I too have had foxes show up in broad daylight and snatch chickens just off my front porch (that's why I built a run for them and don't let them wander around out of a fenced in area).
You should see my semi ferrel tom cat, he's got a face only a owner could love. One eye missing cauliflower ears, lets you pet him when HE wants to let you.
The kind of pet that requires welding gloves to pick up. So tough I've seen him sleeping outside in snow.
He always has cuts and welts from fighting with the other local tom "Comprar Gh Jintropin" cats, we just patch him up if he allows "Oxandrolone Powder India" you to (and that's only if he gets a real beating).
