For a week now I've been battling this crow who is stealing our chickens eggs. I have not resorted to traps yet of any kind and have been trying to get to the eggs faster than the bird can. Unfortunately they are smarter than I gave credit for and are now here almost 24/7 to get the eggs before I do !! I think it is illegal to shoot these bird here or kill them since they are native... maybe I can trap it. The chickens free range and lay their eggs in terracotta pots I put instrategic areas ... here is a pic of the crow: It's also been taking twigs et cetera to build a nest nearby, there could be 2 birds but they both look the same to me so... I have no idea Ideas/suggestions?
