I just hope every other day is enough. I was worried about them being in the shed and no run but it’s pretty big area for two...

    What are the best coyote deterrents?

    I have the “night guards” which I think help and we live in the mountains where coyotes are plentiful. We transfer our ducks to a enclosed shed tho. Our turkeys stay out in run that isn’t very secure but nothing has broke through it’s been a year. We have security motion lights. Two dogs that we...

    Yes they were separated right away I had him bring the ducks inside and had diapers on but I decided to put them in the tub and the blood wiped away and the gash isn’t as bad as I initially thought.

    Hello yesterday I posted because my fiancé was telling me the turkeys were only pecking at the ducks to mess with them and I said they were looking like they’d attack.

    My fiancé said they’re all def toms. He asked if it’s different that they’re wild eastern turkeys in PA? Yeah we are not agreeing he thinks the mean turkey is pecking at everyone under him because never pecks or bothers the biggest bird. So he thinks he just messing with everyone. (The mean one...
