Squirrels are stealing my pullet eggs. They are Exchequer Leghorns who are supposed to lay a smallish egg, so I fear they may never get too big for the squirrels to take. Rats I can live with because they only come out at night, so as long as I collect from the yard before dusk, no problems. But how do I deal with squirrels? I live in the city, so I can't shoot them. I would prefer not even to trap them as we have so many squirrels in this neighborhood, the problem would surely return in short order. What do I do about this? It's not like I can stand around in my yard all day catching eggs as they pop out!
