    Mods have visited, I can tell.


    I guess I need to get a trap and catch everything and anything I can...


    Annoying how they caught the flying duck and not the snail 10lbs Pekin....

    I think I should sell my ducks and get over having eggs, no one eats them anyway.

    It came back and ate my last Khaki hen!!! Frick!!!!
    I ran out and saw the eyes going off through the fences. Caught the last two ducks and put them in with the chickens. Won't let anyone out until I can catch and kill this stupid fox!!

    A snare placed where you saw it going through the fence will do the job for you. Good luck.
