    You never know what's lurking in your woods. Butchered 10 chickens this weekend and left the feathers and entrails out with my trail cam set up to see what is in my woods.

    Really cool pictures. Neighbors need to do something about their dogs. I would round them up take them to humane society.

    Wow, as cool as those pics are.....dont you think you are drawing in trouble? I mean...I know they ( dogs and cyotes) already smell your chickens....but giving the a tasty treat enticeing them in closer? I would be scared. Hope you have electric fencing around your chicken run. Be safe!

    Yeah I am not too happy about the dogs, at least I have documented pics if they cause trouble

    I don't really think I am drawing in trouble as that is probably their range anyways. My garbage and chickens would draw them in anyways if I go with that theory.

    I have saw the coyotes hunting rabbits before in my back yard. It was pretty neat actually

    The chickens have a fully enclosed 16X24 fly pen and then I let them out to range when I am home for the evening once in a while

    I am actually not sure what the brand name is. If I ever got another one, I get one with a display screen on it so you can see the pics without downloading them on to the cpu.
