    I was sitting in the barn yesterday and the catch them-live trap box was on it's side, and I was hot, and I did not have glasses, and I was looking at it side ways- To describe the size of animal it would hold they had silhouettes on the corner, there was a picture of a raccoon, a opossum and a crawling baby. I didn't think much of it, then It hit me and I leaned in closer for a better look. It was a ground hog. I was a bit relived.

    Hi Nicole, I'm Debby. Sounds like you have enough to keep you very busy!

    What is it with the vermin lately? For the very 1st time, we found where a rat had chewed through the lid of a thick plastic container to get to the corn. Spent the next 3 hours driving from one small town to another to find metal trash cans (a total of 5 stores). Got all the feed, corn and sunflower seed stowed in them now. And 4 big ol' rat traps set up and waiting.

    Ugh, I absolutely can't stand anything rodent like. Give me snakes, lizards, toads, bugs, whatever...just no rodents please!

    Ugh. Snakes creep me out!! Cause we have a lot more rattlers here than we did up in Alberta (which still had rattlers yes...)

    I'm just afraid of me or the mutt coming across one and snake going aaah!!! Big things!!!! Chomp!

    Tending to my chickens
    I'd love some sun. I planted some kale the other day and I'd like it to grow. I like rain, but this is outrageous! [​IMG] I think my chickens are getting their daily water intake through breathing in the air!

    My oldest son was always big on reptiles so I'm used to all things slithery. When he was around 11 we took him to a herpetology show/sale. He fell in love with this little brownish colored snake and had to have it. Since he told me it would never get very big, I agreed. Well...that was before I knew enough to know Rocko was a Burmese Python that would eventually grow to over 6' long by the time son left for college.

    He had a choice...take Rocko with him or find him a new home. I could barely believe the number of people that responded to his ad...we could have sold at least a dozen of them.
