Just thinking about my recent facebook statuses over the past 3 days, nothing but predator stories!!! Fortunately, no losses though (except developed eggs, but they weren't hatched YET) Rat stole eggs from my broody, found a stash of layer pellets under a bucket that the chickens couldn't have done, baited it with Tomcat. Today I bought a real TomCat bait station to protect my birds from the baits. Baby, ok "teenage" possum trapped outside my bachelor pad coop. 2 guys with flashlights prowling around in the alleyway behind my house this morning at 4.30am, called 911 and a cop shined his spotlight around but didn't find the guys. Red fox trapped outside my bachelor pad coop. I've never seen a fox up close before. I didn't know that they had such long legs. I had seen it cross the road at my in-law's driveway before, so I was worried about it when I moved my bachelors out to their property. I set the trap with catfood for the last 4 days, and the last two nights have caught predators.
