    Pulled off the wire and killed all 3 chickens overnight. And no one heard it, which is odd as the other times the ^^%&% thing has been around, we all heard them making a fuss.

    To borrow a quote, "This, you realize, means war!"
     
  2. Backyard chickens & raccoons don't mix do they.

    Go get em! And get another for me!

    Wish ya the best.

    I has occurred to me what I need is something like a claymore mine, but for use against raccoons. But that is probably not legal.

    Do you have a gun? Or a trap? Both work, we haven't had trouble with to many raccoons but we have had minks around. Just recently a mink farm let lose hundreds of minks by accident. [​IMG]

    Best of luck, hope you win the war.

    Dukes dog proof traps baited with marshmallows and an old fashioned bat work well. Swing for the fences.
