Last night was a NIGHTMARE! We've had poultry for 3 years, and with the exception of the occasional hawk flyby, we have NEVER ONCE had a problem with predators. Then last night I caught 2 opossums (opossi?) in the chicken run. Luckily, they had not yet gotten into the coop. It was right at dusk. We took care of that problem. But then, at 4:00 am, we were awakened by the most horrible scream from one of our ducks. I ran for a flashlight, threw open the window, but couldn't see anything other than 2 of my 3 ducks. This morning, I found her: Daisy, carried about 50 feet from her duck house. Neck broken and bloodied and eviscerated. See below. *sob* Her mate, Donald, is wandering around like he's lost today. What critter did this? The ducks were *not* behind a gate last night simply because of the opossum ordeal. All in one freakin' night! But what should we expect to be revisiting us tonight? Please help us so we can put the appropriate trap in place!
