Fishers are not protected here in middle TN. We have sat out at different times every night for a week and not seen anything...but it has returned to eat the heads off of the Orps that it missed during the first kill. Now all the bodies are gone but am worried sick. Bought 1/2 x 1/2 welded wire to redo ALL of the inside walls and some outside walls of the houses to make sure there are NO spaces for it to get in...a major undertaking. There is 1" wire up now...am just so paranoid. Already have concrete under the doors of the two that are not raised flooring. Next I will redo the outside with hot wire...did that to stop raccoons years ago. This guy is lower to the ground.
In the interim, all are inside my garage room making a mess and free ranging during the day, instead of in their covered pens, and I had to run off a hawk today! Never ending. Doesn't matter how fortified you think your chicken houses are it seems like something will find a way in.
And I have a 20g pump and a 22... problem is this weasel is faaassst and very dark in the night.
