This cold morning we were awakened to the warning signal roos give when there is danger present. My roos on the west side of the property were having a fit. After looking through the windows for a bit we didn't see anything. We didn't immediately go outside "Hey is was cold and we figured a hawk flew by." A minute escaped us and I had to go pee and I heard my chickens on the east side start with there warning. This is where my baby and teenage coop is located. These are all babies I hatched out. I came to the front of the house to report this news to my oldman "Snakeman" who was still looking through the west side windows. At that point my redneck oldman grabbed his 12 gauge with turkey choke and wearing nothing but a smile and his birthday suit said "Let me see if I can shoot something, its been awhile." He makes it to the backdoor of the house and about a minute and a half later "BOOM" my redneck oldman takes the shot while still standing in the doorway. Now in case your wondering a 12 gauge shotgun being fired from the doorway of your house is LOAD and it happening first thing in the morning will definately wake you up. Forget coffee. What Snakeman first witnesses after opening the backdoor was amazing. My babies in there huge run were in a panic.. What he saw next was five free range roos, "Rocko" my top game bird at seven years old was leading the pack with four of his offspring from last years hatch in tow. The not so sneaky fox was about six foot from my babies run and all five roos were between the fox and my freightened babies. They were not letting the fox get any closer. Snakeman set his sites on the fox and had to wait for one of the roos to step to the side a bit and then he took the shot. After the fox hit the ground all five roos ran to it and started pecking and floging the fox. You can be well assured there were extra treats in these brave roos food bowl today. For the past few months I've had a predator coming up and taking free range mama hens caring for biddies off the nest during the night. Hopefully this will solve my current predator problem. I hate to kill anything but this fox was doing my birds in, it had to go!!! Gotta love those game roos.
