    Well, I am very happy to say that after losing most of my laying flock, and various chicks, ducks and turkeys, I finally solved my raccoon problem, at least I think. Now my problem is that my younger chickens want to roost in a big old stand of pines and not in the coop, so I have lost several bantams in the past few weeks. I keep hearing an owl in the edge of the woods so I think that is the problem. So my next move is to build a new covered run to keep them in so they will learn to roost inside.
