I have had so much fun with my new birds. 40 cornish, 20 different egg layers and 2 geese. This morning I went to the coop to feed and it was silent. Every bird was laying there dead. All killed with a bit just below the head. We called Game Fish and Parks and they came out, took pictures and examined the bite marks and said it was a mink. He gave us the ok to trap and is sending out someone to set a live trap in the morning. I am so so sad.My kids are crushed. They were more like pets to us. Does anyone have any advice other than closing up any space that we saw that it might have gotten through? Are there any other tricks to keeping mink away from the building? I want to get more birds but not until I am sure we have either caught the bugger or figured out how he got in there in the first place.
