Quote:Oh, man, how awful! We often leave a light on, and a radio playing. The only times predators got anythng was when we had our ducks in the marsh---way away from the house, and the yard-light on the telephone pole points the other way from the marsh. Ducks are in the back yard, near my chickens, and so far nothing bothered anything. Of course, i shut my chickens in the coop at night, and the ducks are now in a wire-covered pen. We recently set up a light in the duck pen---it's actually landscape lighting, low to the ground, it attracts bugs and moths for them to eat! I think it also would keep predators away. The light is also on a dusk to dawn timer---comes on automatically, so i don't forget it.
