>>For relatively little money and just a few hours of manual work you can construct an outdoor pen that is raccoon and bird proof. No idea about Coyotes.

>>Construct solid-sided walls in an area of your preference and add a open-able top that has some strong wire to keep out raccoons and finer wire to keep out crows. Another option is housing babies indoors until they get a little larger.

>>Good luck with them .

Thanks.....I've already put your suggestion in place. I have set up a section of my pen specifically for the younger set. I live in the middle of a good size city that has begun to be invaded with coons. We do have some roadrunners but no coyotes so far, except on the outskirts of town. I now have two traps in my yard and have captured 4 coons. I had one of them completely destroy a trap he got caught in. I have since purchased an even stronger trap. You can see my new trap that is set set (in black) next to my shed near the far end of my turtle pen.

Here's a better pic of the lid on the "secure" part of the pen.
