Well, the same coon has killed seven of our birds in the past MONTH... Tonight I went out to show a friend our chickens ( btw it was pitch black outside) and we had sat and had been talking for at least twenty minutes and I looked over and there was a coon staring at us. We quietly watched him walk around our trap over and over again, but didn't go in and walked over to our tractor coops. He started running so we grabbed our 22 and started chasing! About 45 minutes later I've got a 25 pound coon! 25 pounds! I know right?? He's a big boy with probably a couple chickens in his system! I'm going to gut him in the morning and see what's in his stomach! Wish me luck! Haha!
