When a tornado hits North Georgia someone is going to lose a chicken house.
Thanks SCG that is a great idea! I will def tell DH I want one for my birthday. I do know of one critter on our property that could be doing this, it is a Fox Tail Squirrel. We are going to have to re-do this brooder again.
I love all the pics from y'all's hiking trip! They are so beautiful looks like you all had a great time!
Ahhhhh, this statement, along with the pics helped. I was imagining a brooder on the ground. I agree with the weasel/rat guesses, although if a coon can get under there, it is a possibility.
hanks SCG that is a great idea! I will def tell DH I want one for my birthday. I do know of one critter on our property that could be doing this, it is a Fox Tail Squirrel. We are going to have to re-do this brooder again.
you stated these attacks were happening at night??? I think that eliminates the squirrel. I do agree that there is nothing like a trail cam. Just don;t forget to ask for one that can take night pics, preferably infrared
Martins, minks, weasels, rats, coyotes, squirrels, racoons, hawks, snakes, cats, dogs, moutain lions, puma, jaguar,
this country sucks for keeping chickens safe!
just as well it has other redeaming qualities
here is a useful thread
We are probably going to put in a false bottom on the brooder and add more hardware cloth. Plus get a night time game cam. I just cannot believe that this happened so close to my dogs and they heard nothing! I may even move the brooder into the back section of my rooster run that has never been used .
What I don't understand is why my birds in the coop and large runs have not these problems. We used 2x4 welded wire on our runs and our coops do not get locked up at night and most of our birds don't sleep in the coop!
I found this on Facebook it is so amazing you all should see these baby ducks! I have never seen or heard of anything like this before. I loved watching it.
I didn't think the ducklings produced lactase to digest the milk... how extraordinary.
And really cute.
think cat and a fishbowl. the pred was safely hidden underneath and the birds had no where to go.
