Well, about 2 days ago I lost my barred rock hen. her head was ripped off and less than half of her was eaten. I am pretty sure that it was a raccoon, due to the raccoon prints on my new chicken coops white door. So, last night I set a trap. I used bread and a duck egg. Well, nothing. But the bread and egg was eaten. I think that the trap didnt go off because it wasnt oiled enough. So, i sprayed WD-40 over all the moving parts, and set the live trap again, using a duck egg, which they love. I am pretty sure that I will wake up to a raccoon. I will be relocating it a couple miles away, unless it looks sickly. Then I will have to kill it and dispose of its body. I dont want to be relocating a sick raccoon. Wish me luck!!!
