In the Brooder
- Jun 3, 2011
...it happened to us today. A raccoon came out early this evening and tried to pull one of the girls through a 1" opening alongside the door to the run, separating her head from her body (it looks like she was lounging right there next to it at the time), and then half and hour after I finished cleaning up, I had to chase off a bobcat who was headed right for the coop (not that it could get in, but the poor girls certainly don't need any more stress today...). And mind you, my husband was home at the time and heard the ruckus, but by the time he got down there, it was too late. I had been deluding myself into believing that the gap wasn't really a problem since they are locked up at night and it's the ONLY gap anywhere on the lower 3 feet of the run. Poor girl....
