    [​IMG] ,,, being on a permenant dissabillity does have it's perks,,bout 10 minutes ago i went out and gave my girls some cut up grapes , no sooner than i came in and put on the tea pot ,,i hear my girls going zonkers , looking out the window i saw a coon teasting the 3 wire enclosure ..[​IMG]..[​IMG]...., my wife coaxed me into keeping one of my shotguns and a couple of shells in the back hall after she claimed the 2 buff orpington pullets as her's--[​IMG]----well ,.. [​IMG]....old poop can still shoot , 1 coon added to critter heaven before he can alert his brethern of the chickens down hill---[​IMG]---girls went nuts but soon settled down----i think i'am going to bring this carcass to the DEC as it should not have been out during day light hours ----we have a rabie thing going on in our area...[​IMG]

    now , on a better note , i am very glad i got paranoid over the wire issue on the coop and run section-----the metal roof and the 3 different wire types i recently added paid off big time today...[​IMG].......thanks BYC members

    WAY TO GO. I find that $$ spent on hardware cloth has not been wasted. Glad your girls are OK.

    Nicely done. A call to animal control or whoever your approprite authority is in order, especially with rabies in your area, but a healthy coon will roam during the daytime for several different reasons. Hopefully they will dispose of the carcass for you.
