    I checked my wildlife camera the other day, and here's one of the videos:

    These 2 cats hangout at the vacant mobile home lot. Since I've fortified my coop with pallets, there's no danger of them getting in. But, I can't help but wonder if, prior to that work I did, the cats were the ones spooking all my hens and killed off 3/4's of my flock. I have some spring traps I'll be setting soon, and if they get caught, too bad, so sad...

    Why isn't your box trap catching them?

    LOL It wasn't baited, so they had no reason to go all the way in.
