I agree with the city comment. Most likely on the coon issue. They seem to "play" with what they eat a bit more than a opossum.
Arkansas folks speak up......... - Page 938
Hey there! I'm just outside of Little Rock and Benton. About halfway between each city.
Check with Ed Turner. You can find him on Facebook, under Saline County Ar-Farm, Lucestock, Poultry and Relayed Items. And also Arkansas Farm and Ranch Swap/Sell.
I should sell everything I have but won't. Got a predator problem and keep losing them. Traps and such aren't working too good right now.
Well, I have a good man. Every few months I come up with another chicken coop modification that I want to make and he is the construction expert. We were having some roof leakage that I wanted to cure before winter so we put up new roofing and flashing today. Now I just need rain to see how we did.
Currently have 4 pullets, one not to POL yet.
9 ratty looking molting hens.
One Juvenile roo who is just crowing and trying to figure out how to do the deed.
One mama hen with six - one week old chicks.
I think I am set for winter. I am anxious to see who keeps laying (if any) this winter as we are not going to light them this year. Currently I only have the 3 laying so I am not sure if anyone else will chime in after they complete their molt or not.
Need some chicken wire ( just can't afford any right now). I think would cure the whole problem.
I think they are still selling them here.
