I go up earlier than usual this morning and went to check on my birds before leaving home. This was at 2:00 am. When I got close to the coop I heard something running away from the coop ( other coons I guess) buy anyway there he was looking at my girls and looking at me, caught red handed. I quickly dispatched him with a stray t-post. And found how they were getting in. A hole in the wire no bigger than a softball where my PVC feeder used to be. I patched it and am hoping for the best. Do y'all think that they can eat through chicken wire? They are persistent.







No matter how angry we are, bypassing the censor with symbols is a no-no.

Someone once posted a picture of a havahart trap all tore up by a coon.The chicken wire would be nothing to them. I keep my trap set 24/7 and recently dispatched 2 more coons totaling 7 now!

A haveahart trap won't work for me. When it comes to anything trying to get at my hens, I don't have a hart. But I do keep my .380 on my belt.
