Thank you unfortunately a Raccoon got my Ringneck male last night and tried to get into coop that houses my Goldens. Stole our eggs and used the hoods of our cars to break the eggs open. Tonight he will meet his maker. He comes around 11-11:30 and I can see his trail coming across lawn. So I made something for him.
Coop building seems to be a never ending project here too. Always reinforcing, etc. We strung the white horse fence tape back and forth over our open run after losing one of our girls to a hawk. It looks a bit goofy, but it's working.
