    After all the possum and raccoon drama at the old place, and dog massacres at the new place, I thought I had the coop relatively secure only to be woken at 1:30 this morning to find an OWL inside the coop eating my favorite duck. An OWL!!! REALLY?!?!?! One of the pieces of tin blew off the roof and the summbich dropped in for a little tête de canard for his midnight snack.

    The goats ate the peach tree, the drought killed the pecan tree and now OWLS are eating my ducks. OMG how did the pioneers survive?

    I am so sorry. I often wonder how the Pioneers did it too. [​IMG]

    Darn coyotes have moved here. As I listened to them in the middle of the night I estimate them to be within 500 ft. of us. So it is like when you get past one thing another comes.

    I think the pioneers survived on eternal vigilance and a loaded gun near at hand! [​IMG]

    It got back in and ate my pretty little pullet's head. Time to bring out the 22 rifle.
