Oh wow, it's been forever.. To the person who wanted to know about my water system.. I forgot to get a picture, but it's the nipple bucket feeder at Tractor Supply store with the sinker warmer in place. Been working up here in -10 weather.
I been battling weasels, minks, and now I've seen a fisher cat tracks around the coop fence. I got the Mink, and two white weasels, but not the bigger fisher. Last night my hubby and me stayed up all night on patrol, but no luck. So far all my chickens are still with me, yesterday the roosters had a clash with some crows that got into the coop yard, it was a huge, loud ruckus of a mess.
I am tired y'all. Hope everyone else is having a better winter then me.. LOL Time for Church, then sleep, If the crows don't come back.
Hardware cloth wire fencing. Strong enough to have a coyote bounce right off of it when its stretched out tight, and the holes are small enough that weasels can't slip in. You might also want to look around your doors for gaps as well. Those little buggers don't need much space at all to slip into a coop.
