    Raccoon/cat Mad at myself and heart broken!

    Gold Dust's adopted babies are growing up fast!! They are almost 3 months old! I believe we lucked out with three girls and one boy. Sweet lil thing has a scratching lil crow already. He makes me laugh in the mornings trying to talk back to Bad Hair Day. ( grown rooster) I lost my two RIR's to a...

    Gold Dust has turned out to be a wonderful loving momma! I am so proud of her! Thanks! Subhanalah, Sounds like it might be a cat. I have heard if you play a radio during the hours they are unsupervised or not in coop it should keep the stray cats at bay. Worth a try! Hope your chickens stay safe.

    Gold Dust is out doors in the drooding coop with 4 new baby chicks she has taken to very well and is mothering them great!!! I am so proud of her and thankful of her full recovery! Looking forward to the next adventures and fun in the next stage of her life!

    Raccoon/cat Mad at myself and heart broken!

    Aww thank you!!! I believe you are correct! Black and Blue Polish sounds like it maybe. Hummm wonder if Gold Dust will be able to do egg math and realize she has two chicks but only had one egg she was sitting on?!?! Have to tell you earlier I went l out and she was standing up in the nesting...

    Starfire669, That would be a wonderful idea!! Not sure how to do the night switch but I know there will be tons of great info on the site for me! I did see two cute chicks at TSC but I will try to find someone local first that I can see their blood lines and birds. The two at TSC had perfectly...

    Starfire669, I am not sure if I have any fertle eggs. She has ever been with a roo and Bad Hair Day is only 3 months old and only been with the the older girls a few weeks. I may try to see if I can get some BO eggs for her and see if she will hatch them as she is sitting on the egg tonight and...

    Gold Dust had an egg today!!! Boy was she proud also!!! She wanted the world to know!! She is sitting on it picking up shavings and moving and tucking them. Hate that it isn't hatchable for her. If she continues to be broody she maybe a good incubator Momma!!! Not sure I want to raise little...

    PamelaTX, Thank goodness for your dogs. What breed do you have? There were tons of new smaller coon prints on top of the rubbermaid container I keep feed in beside a metal lidded trash can for supplies that is about 3 feet from the coop. I had it along side the coop but realized they used it...

    PamelaTX. At 7:35pm every night now a rooster croos till I turn the alarm off on my phone!! It is my reminder to secure the girls up! :-) She worried me those first few days but she is a trooper! Just not sure she will ever be able to go back in with her age girls. I will weigh her...

    Raccoon/cat Mad at myself and heart broken!

    ChaoSS, I had an egg yolk and used rolled oats and mixed it up and let it sit a little bit to soften trying to get her to at least eat some yolk as she wouldn't eat the eggs any other way or much else just after the attack. I cook them other wise when they eat them and add fruit to it. Adding...

    Raccoon/cat Mad at myself and heart broken!

    Aww thanks!!! That is a great idea as she loves mealworms. I could get her to eat those during that time. I am thankful she is so much better also! I wasn't sure she was going to make it for a while. I think the colloidal silver kept it from getting infected. I am working on a new coop and have...

    Raccoon/cat Mad at myself and heart broken!

    I tried scrambled, boiled, and raw with oats while trying to get her to eat after attack and she wouldn't touch them but I will try them again. Also read while researching must now to up her calcium so I will work on that also with her.

    Raccoon/cat Mad at myself and heart broken!

    Thanks subhanalah. I will check her tomorrow and see. The egg she hatched was pearl white so it's process had already began and missed the color process most likely from what my research tells me. She seems well and eating and drinking good so I will check her and then be on the look out.

    Raccoon/cat Mad at myself and heart broken!

    First time out to dust!!! She was in heaven! Today I had her out with the other two girls she has always been with and she was lowest on pecking order. Well, the girls both attacked her at different times but Gold Dust kept coming back to be by them or get mealworms and the girls would go to her...

    David, The coop is secure for sure. We have known we have them around and seen them personally in back yard area but it was my fault they now know or one knows dinner is inside the coop because I left the door open. So need to try to rid our self of that one. Might be a while but I will do it...

    Poop board convert *warning-graphic/gross poop pictures*

    Thanks Trish! I have Blue Kote and Vetercyn Hydrogel. I am using the Vetercyn now to keep moist and wasn't sure if I needed to use both and how to manage application of both. Read on here that Blue Kote was good for using when they are back with others to color the redness so I knew it would be...

    I can't begin to tell you how thankful I am for this thread!! 3 nights ago my BO, Gold Dust, was attacked by a raccoon or an oppossum and I had Sweet PDZ in the trunk to put in rabbit cage to make a nice comfortable place for her inside the house!!! The poop boards will wait for bit but Gold...
