    @Amberjem , Chicken tractor looks great! Birds look happy also!

    @RavynFallen , Do an online search for golden malrin-raccoons. I think it's actually illegal to use for raccoons. Not saying I used this method as it is illegal around here. Just saying you may want to check it out. Crazy that the state is OK with raccoons slaughtering my chickens, but I can't do the same to them....?

    The weather is nuts here. I am going to get a little rest. Little girl is off school tomorrow. Mommy- daughter day for us. My last post on here was over 19 hours ago. I had been up for almost an hour before I posted that and I haven't been to bed since. Good night/ good morning everyone. Happy President's Day!

    Just worked a 16hr shift on double time [​IMG]! Been celebrating with some beers, and popcorn [​IMG] with extra butter, little parmesan cheese, and some cayenne pepper powder mmm good!
    Time to watch some Netflix and sip on a couple more beers, watching the series Outcasts, not bad, but not as good as Firefly, or The 100 (waiting for the second season).

    Hard to believe the chickens are still alive, been 0 with 20-40 below wind chill for two days and tonight, just went to fill our outside wood boiler and had snotcicles! Wife said no eggs today, huh wonder why? They say polish chickens are not hardy, well if the one we have survives this winter I think they wrong! Doing good so far.

    @Outpost JWB thanks, I'll look that up... it is possums, though, will that still work?
    Oh, here in TN we are allowed to defend our livestock (poultry is included) with deadly force if needed, even against loose domestic animals... the only things we aren't allowed to touch are endangered species (which includes all raptors)...
