I was just dozing off last night when all the birds in the trees started making loud sounds I have tons of trees around my house so theres alot of birds who nest here doves, scissor tail fly catchers, sparrows, mocking birds, ect, they all were in an uproar then I heard my chickens start flipping out there 5 week old cornish crosses. I looked outside my window which is where I have them for easy observance. And there was this giant Bird out there I assume it was an owl But It was dark and this thing almost picked up the cage It didn't manage to break threw my design But it did manage to get a talon inside that split one of my birds from its neck clear to its leg one big gapping wound. I had nothing to cull it with So i had to rip its head off as fast as I possibly could So it didnt have to suffer. Guess this means out with the chicken wire and in with the hardware cloth. Sigh no sleep for me today. I know its illegal to kill owls So I guess Its time to put the Kitty cat In the Barn where I saw a few Of them housing and let nature take its course. I will Chicken wire the Only exit off while there in it and let the rest be history.
