Hehe. I have been doing this for weeks, now. Every time there is an animal in the chicken coop, I grab the B.B gun, load it, pump it hard, and shoot the crap out of whatever it is attacking my flock. The animals I hit never bleed or get open wounds, they just get a major sting! The dogs have learned their lesson, but cats are stupid, so, I don't know if they'll ever learn. Oh well. Please don't say I am mean for doing this. I am merely defending my chickens. These animals are gonna have to learn that my chickens are off limits!
