After I lost 7 of my 13 eleven week olds to a raccoon Friday night I ordered 11 more from Ideal. They shipped today & I can't wait. I learned a lesson & hopefully there won't be anymore coon problems.

I ordered 1 Buff Orpington Roo, 2 Americauna's, 1 Barred Rock, 1 Silver Laced Wyandotte, 1 gold sex link & 5 Mille Fleur d'uccle bantams.
The coon got my 2 silver laced Wyandottes & 3 buff orpington's (including my only rooster), a barred rock & 1 production red. I've only got 1 barred rock, 1 buff orpington & 4 production red pullets left that are 12 weeks old today. I've never had any bantams & I saw a picture of a mille fleur d'uccle on here & thought they were beautiful. Figured I would try it with them, hope not too many of them are roos.

I ordered 10 barred rocks and 20 assorted pullets. They should be here tomorrow, since Ideal is right here in Texas.

As for coons and possums... I lost a whole dozen chicks to a possum a month ago, so I finally spent the money and put up a hotwire. I wish I'd done it years ago!

Well, no call from the post office this morning so I guess the postal service will be taking care of them for another day. Hopefully they'll all be okay.
