    something is getting in the quail enclosure and taking 1 a night. I am down to 2 that have been moved into the garage. I'm picking up some babies this evening so I think I have some time to fashion a critter proof enclosure, but this is the first time (outside of an opossum 1 year, that I have ever had anything kill my birds. The opossum just took eggs and a god chunk on a muscovy hen's leg when she refused to get off her nest. I am suspecting a squirrel, but I suppose it could be a ferret.

    I'm not happy!
