Hello so on Thanksgiving morning about 3 am my family woke up to sounds we have never heard our chicken make before we ran out to discover a raccoon in the coop. We managed to get all the hens out I went inside with the raccoon and started shoving them out the door telling my teens to put them in the garage. The raccoon ment business and was not happy with me. We assessed our hens and only one was injured pulled out lots of feathers from her tail and a bit on tail along with a nice chunk out of stomach. I have fixed up my coop more putting more boards around the hard wire cloth and added more hardwire cloth. My question is if I keep shooting them with husband pant ball gun( paint ball are made of vegetable oil and food coloring) The last couple of nights ( 4 raccoons I am trying to keep at bay.) I have had chickens for over 4 years never had and issue before and nothing in my area has changed so any suggestions to help are appreciated i am hoping if I keep on them they will just give up. I also have lights around coop but they dont seem to do anything but keep opossum away.
