Im not posting this to get a rise. That said Ive had chickens and ducks for a few years now. Ive lost many a chicken to various preditors. Wile deployed to Afganistan with the army I really got into preditor hunting and preditor calling (Jackles, wolves,stray dogs) Ive found it to be the last fronter of hunting due to the fact preditors are smart with good eye sight and smell and present a unique challange some of you may know. So when I went home I discoverd the rich oppertunity to go preditor hunting due to the fact my roo's calls called in the coyotes in like flys on chicken poop! And Racoons can be called in by the sound of chickens as well foxes. But what struck me the most is as over time my rooster and I have devloped a partnership. When ever a preditor shows up he always lets me know by runnig to the door with that piticular call Im shure every one on this forum knows. He even let me know when deer are in the yard wich has fed my family and the chickens. He always follows me around when ever he see my carring my AR 15 and talks non stop sticking close to me even wile Im shooting the noise dosent bother them. The chickens love the abdominal contents of any any type of preditor they dont get eaten and I get the pelt we all win except the preditor. I will post pics of some of the roosters victims. If thats all right. I just love any pet that you really team up with and I love that rooster!
