The one in the picture is a full grown mink.

Weasels don't have as thick of bodies but longer tails. They're lighter brown with a much lighter underside.

Both can squeeze through a 1" opening.

 

I think we have 3 different species of weasels. The least is most common around here and can get in the smallest openings.

 

Definitely.

IDK whether we do or not, and don't know their normal range; maybe I need to look it up. I wouldn't recognize either if I saw them. We have lots of wooded area, wide-open grain fields, and plenty of creeks.

Okay so my friend has chicks and one of them just pooped this. Is it a parasite? I didn't think chicks had parasites? If it is one how should she go about caring for it?

Pretty sure my parents are creating a chickaholic 12 step program for me behind my back.

Caretaker of 40+ spoiled feathered babies, 3 dogs, 3 cats, 4 goats, 1 ram, 2 desert tortoises, and 2 sulcata tortoises.

I went through our horrible security footage, and saw the fox definently attacked the baby tractor first.

Poor girl's always having internet problems. She has the same ISP I do; not so swift. Of course when you call them they swear their equipment is doing what it's supposed to do. :he

One of these days you'll end up like me..... Collected 168 eggs at feeding time this evening not including duck eggs. Probably another 15-20 at lock up.

That's the one, alright!  Only viable option for me, unless I move into town...like that's ever going to happen....I'd sooner live in my truck
