Chickens are pretty well blind at night and a fairly quiet animal can walk right up to them.
That's how I catch my chickens that don't go in at dusk. Just walk up to them and grab them. Same birds I can't get within 20 feet of during the day.

X2. Coyote or dog get my vote.
For you bee keepers in northern climates, do you insulate your hives, what do you use to insulate, for winter and at what temperature do you want to have it in place?
I just watched a special on Africanized bees and their spread. They've been researching to determine why interbreeding with more docile European bees hasn't made them less aggressive as was widely expected to happen by experts.
They figured it out but what they determined won't lead to an remedy.
They inseminated an African queen with both African and European sperm.
They then grew the larvae and found that all the African larvae emerged as queens one day before the Europeans. So that means, in a hive, the first queen to emerge will emit it's pheromones and become the new queen. Then she goes around and kills all her rivals - the Europeans.
