    I live with woods in my backyard and I have some kind of fierce racoon. He bit off one of my chicken's heads (my favorite buff orpington hen) and then he broke into my duck house and took a 2 month old duck right out from the gable! I had screened it in, but he tore right through it.

    Needless to say, I have set a trap to catch this pest and I am looking forward to getting him too.

    I think he'd make a nice hat- is it in season where you are?

    Sorry to hear that I've had them kill almost my entire flock couple years back. I keep a trap set 24/7 now. Hope you catch it.
