I had a raccoon attack over the weekend lost two birds. First time I have ever even seen a trace of any raccoons, never got into the garbage no paw prints on the deck nothing. It was sad the little punk coons got an eye hook loose gave them just enough space to get in to one of my coops. I consider it lucky they only got two of eight. Why couldn't they get the mean roo? Anyway. After some new latches and bungi cords things are much more secure. I have read a lot of posts about raccoons it sounds like the only thing that will keep them away is humans and dogs. Well my working dog is with the goats pretty far away from the coops. So my next thought was to leave an A.M. radio on all night in the chicken pen. I haven't seen any evidence of coons since I've done this. No little hand prints nothing moved around. So my question is this pure coincidence or does the voices on talk radio keep them away? Just wondering if anyone else has thoughts on this.
