    Well, this morning 10am I let the girls out. I walked all around the coop like always checking out for tracks. I found some where the girls like to dust bathe...definitely Raccoon tracks! Then I looked at the roof of the coop and found MUD and dirt on the tin roof! Ok...now I posted my coop pics a couple days ago and I was worried something would try to get up there. DH and I boarded up the eaves and DH had a great idea! He OILED the roof...anything gets up there is going to slip RIGHT off! Too funny!! Now...I've got to get up there to fix the eaves and I'll probably be the one slipping off and breaking a leg or something!! LOL [​IMG]
