Here is one pic of a magpie in the chicken coop picking up the egg and one of the magpie entering the chicken coop. I have the chicken coop in a closed up run with a door I open every morning for them to free-range. If you notice each of these pics are taken on different days. I wondered why I wasn't getting eggs on some days If you look at the pop door you can see an egg on the 'porch'. At 3:56 the egg is gone and no chickens are around. The magpies were too fast for my game camera to get pics of them. I have taken an old trampoline spring, attached it to the gate and put some torque on it to give it enough tension it will spring shut once a bird lands on the stick. So far I have only trapped a sparrow It is very difficult to keep the chickens in the front yard while waiting for a magpie to enter the run. I shall persist and once I get a couple magpies trapped I will harass them enough they wont enter any more for fear of it being a trap. They are smart birds and once trapped they shouldn't ever try to enter again. I hope!!
