We are new to this part of the country- we're in north central/eastern NC. I know we have hawks, skunks, coons, possums, and owls. What else do I have to worry about? We plan to free-range, but I want to make sure we have a run for the babies and the keets until they are large enough to be outside unattended (and know where to come home to). What else is out here? Do I have anything (besides the dogs) that I need to worry about during the day?. Do I need to Ft. Knox my run, too, although the coop will not be open to it at night? And then maybe y'all can tell me- yesterday, the dog got into something that had a god-awful stank; like stanky, stanky rank sweat or something along those lines. It was not a skunk. It wasn't horse poo. Or pee. It could maybe have been cow pee, but it didn't have any kind of urine smell. It was dark, so we don't have any idea what it was; there wasn't any noise that alerted us to it, either. Just the border collies came back nasty stinky. Do we have badgers here? Anything else that can spray and gag you big time? Thanks!
