It's been a while and I tried some research and I still couldn't figure it out!
This morning I found some strange looking mush, it was right next to some fox scat... and then next to THAT WAS canine/feline scat (we have outdoor cats and dogs so I assume that was them).
It flabbergasts me that I've found THREE different kinds of scat in a row this morning.
As I said the first was fox, the last was pet, and this middle one... I'm not sure... could someone help me out?
Found these adjacent to the coop.
**Helpful Tip: We've been dealing with some sort of predator making holes in our fencing and ripping wire.

Being the scat was found in Missouri, and my fondness for hanging around areas with chickens, I must admit it could be mine after eating too many mulberries and not finding the outhouse close enough.
Well, dang, Centra... the least you could do is patch your peep holes in their wire once you're finished, lol...

I couldn't help but click on this thread...lol. If someone had told me 20 years ago this is what I'd be "into" when I got older...well, I wouldn't of believed them! :lau

Is it the florescent feces we're looking at? I don't recognize it. Must be @centrarchid's
:confused:
I agree with you @Ravynscroft ...it's rude to leave the wire in such a state. ;)

Need to explore cost of determining species ID based in DNA. You could even get it down to individual and what was consumed. Put sample in mail and ship it off like you do mouth skin samples.

That's sounds cost effective.
