Roosted Alive

Everyone roosted in the little coop. Sidney and Phyllis on the roost, Sansa in a little nest on the floor. I just slid the door shut, locked the big door and touched no one tonight. Easy Peasy. Just like it should be. Good girls.
:love
YAY! They are settling in nicely!

Weasels and Minks

The North American weasel weighs 9 ounces and is 9 inches long. This fellow here:

How is that a match for any cat? Am I missing something?

A mink is much bigger.
9oz? Barely more than a hearty snack for a cat! Interesting. I thought they were much bigger and scarier.

Dont be fooled. They fight way above their weight class when killing chickens that weigh 5 to 7 lbs.
Thats my understanding! Plus cats are domesticated animals and the weasels are not. Just being wild makes a huge difference in itself.

That said :D --9 ozs is like half the target weight of the meat quail im raising :gig

I didn't know! What fun. :) I've had a partridge bantam for over a year now, & now some silver laced to run with her!

I'm a sucker for Campines. I love these girls. They are such clowns & very responsive once you have their trust. I started with goldies but now I see why my supplier stopped trying to breed silvers:gig!
