    I pay homage and honour ALL the people that died and suffered so that I may be free. Thank you for your sacrifices.

    It's been a tuff week here. A few days ago a skunk got into the duckling pen and clean it out. The farm went on lockdown, traps were set. Last night he came back, walked right past the trap, chewed threw 3/4 inch plywood and got in the bantam run. Daryl my decrowed Jap did his job and saved the girls. He was my first roo, good with the ladies, and even tolerant of my little boys affection.

    Poor Daryl. I knew skunks were egg eaters, I didn't know they also go after chickens.

    Thanks guys,
    He was an original flock member, more a pet than livestock.I combined LF and bantam flocks into the big coop today (couldn't before cause the roos didn't get along). The skunk can't get in that building. Traps are reset, english mastiff is on patrol in the garden, me or the dog will get this skunk.
