Today I went to see my animals that live in a large shed in my backyard. I have four rabbits, four rats, 8 chickens and two ducks. The shed is split in the middle so the ducks and chickens have one whole side and the rats (which are in cages) and the bunnies have the other side but the bunnies are not caged. So, when I saw them this morning they were all fine and they were all present. Later that day when my boyfriend came over we went to go see the animals and specifically check on the younger chicks to see if they were adjusting to the living with the older chickens well and we were surprised to see that most of our chickens including two young ones were outside and this made us curious because the young chickens do not usually go out. We went inside the shed and there with our bunnies was a weasel. Fortunately the bunnies were not harmed but the weasel savagely killed four of the young chickens who were about a month or two months old, he even beheaded one. The weasel went under the shed or even through the chicken wire to get to the back where the chickens go outside and came into the shed through the chicken door. If anyone has any idea how to get rid of our weasel problem please tell us. Also, if there is one weasel does this mean there will be more? And do we have any other choice than killing the weasel?
