    just came back inside after checking the walkin traps and have a coon about ½ grown , saw where he had been digging aroung the silkie house for the last 2 nites so I moved a trap there and got him/her . The thing had been unlocking the gate and going into the pen for the last 3 nites , I buried some 12x12 floor tile around the edge of the house so it couldn't get in and it worked but it kept coming back . First time I got the predator before it got a chicken . Got a possom fri nite and another last thurs nite . Saw a hawk today fairly close but saw it fly off with a snake later . We seem to be in predator heaven here .
