It seems like once we decided to get birds all sort of predators are popping up (well that and the fact that they tore down the forests and drained the swam a few years ago)! Just last week my mom was going out to the car when she saw some "square looking weasel" run as fast as it could away from the porch. I thought it might be skunk or something but she saw it again and was pretty sure it was a badger. I'm no expert but do they eat chickens/duck?? How in the heck do you keep those kinda pests out? They're really dangerous right?! I have a feeling every hungry animal out side is gonna make a beeline for our yard once we get them .
