    I am not sure if this is where I should put this or not. I have a peach tree right behind my silkie pen. It is outside their pen so they can't get to it. Now I know on Sat. there was a lot of peaches on it. Today when I looked they were all gone but 1. There is none on the ground. All I found on the ground was the seed from one. That is it. What would eat all those peaches in such a short time? I am worried that whatever ate them might come back and try to get the silkies. Please help if you have an idea what eats peaches. Thanks

    Sounds like the Homo species to me...


    Maybe someone came and thought the tree was a public picking place and gathered a feast.

    Maybe a flock of grackles? Seagulls? I would question the neighbors too.

    Quote:I hope not. These isn't any house very close that someone would even see it. They would have to be on my land to see that it was a peach tree and to see the peaches. Boy I hope this doesn't happen again.

    someone here recently had the same thing happen to her pears.

    Wonder if you two could have the same type of critter raiding.

    Birds can clean a tree in no time flat. So can racoons.

    Have people come on my land , thinking mushrooms hunting is their right,same with deer hunting. Even had some dig trees out of my woods.

    That happened to a neighbor. Squirrels stripped the tree in hours.
