ive had a few smaller bantys go missing lately, and egg production seems to be low...or i have a thief......i noticed today 3 ermines flitting through the field...small long ferrety type things..bright white with a black tail tip......ermines! i'd never seen one before in the flesh but there they are...in my field....!! could these be the reason for my bantys numbers declining? and eggs missing? i have no idea what they eat.... ive set some traps around but dont know what they eat...i put eggs in the traps for now !
