I work nights, and usually don't get a phone call from my wife until around 08:00. This morning she called me, with my 7yr old crying in the background ,saying that' a raccoon had killed all but five of our quail we hatched from our own eggs( for the first time).!!!!
Talk about one angry Moe Foe....so, anyone in need of a coonskin cap in the next week or so, just let me know.
Thanks to a forum member, I schould be getting some eggs in the mail at the end of this week.

Stupid raccoon! Live traps are definitely the way to go. Good luck!

Work up to the one roo " crowing " his little head off. Came out to a pile of feathers... I had to separate a bully hen and my 2 roos had started fighting a week ago. had them in a temporary fix , housed in a large dog crate. I've never seen raccoons here.. all I can think of is cat or a snake....

I'm devastated =(
