Signing up cause i have a phew chickens and its a fun hobby raising/breeding them. I live in south eastern CT, and i'm currently having a problem with a fisher cat, AGAINlast time it took about 30 baby chicks that JUST got released into the big coop with the big hens and rooster, but i went outside today to check on them and patch a hole in the fence they keep escaping through and tearing up the yard, and i counted them all and i counted 4 barred rocks, 4 rhodies, and 1.. 2..2... black australorps, and i HAD 4, and theres a bunch of feather behind the coop same spot as last time. Last time i sat on the porch with the 22 rifle, and set up 2 box traps, 1 with a chicken that it killed and left, another with old rancid chicken meat, and then a foot trap with a peice of chicken wired to a near by tree, o then day after i set the traps i went to check the foot trap and the ground was all dug up and the trap was set, but no fisher. I assumed he bleed out or something but i lost 2 today, can't find any trace of it, must have caught him in the act or something. Any suggestions on how catch this evil creature.
