    Yes it is mine, but as you can see it is still in box.... [​IMG] My daughter got it for me so I can spy out my predators in the yard. I lost ALL my pigeons last autumn. Rocky raccoon ate them all in their loft. [​IMG].. So far my chickens have been safe. I'm trying to get around to setting it up, but have been SUPER BUSY with everything else needed to be done. I know its a lame excuse. I need to kick myself in the heinie and just do it. I will post results/ pictures/ and opinions about it when it is up and running.
    In theory it is supposed to work good. [​IMG]

    I have two trail cameras pointed at my coop and enclosed run. I have a variety of predators, but the dogs from way down the road are my biggest problem. My neighbor has caught a cougar on his, so I'm hoping it doesn't come my way. But I have taken all the extra measures to add extra security to my coops.
