Last year my flock of six was raised by something, probably a pack of dogs or coyotes. They got everyone of my girls plus my rooster. It was a sad scene, feathers everywhere and I found several body parts.... Horrible experience. I braved to buy four more this year, Golden Comets. I had revamped my coop and run, so far my chickens are four months old and we actually have an egg! I won't hesitate to shoot something by my coop.

Possums will do it too, kill chickens and go for eggs.

Horses make me a better person.

Oh my, this brings back such hilarious memories of my grandmother (she's still alive and doing well!). One time, we knew she had raccoons living in her loft of the chicken barn. We took a couple flashlights and my mother, older sister and grandmother crept up to the barn. My grandmother had brought her handgun and it looked antique! My mother, sister and I all waited on the ground. It was dead silent and all of a sudden we heard a loud Bang as the shot went off in the loft... My mom yelled up to see if my grandma had got anything and her reply was 'No! I can't see anything, but I thought if I shot the gun the little b*******would get scared off...' I laughed sooo hard I was crying.

She's also caught a live skunk in the trap and since my dad was away and she doesn't like to shoot animals unless she has no other choice she decided if it lived til my dad came home a week later, he could shoot it. She gave it water and everything because she felt so bad! And yes - my dad ended up having to shoot it when he got back and he used a tarp to cover it before doing so in order for it not to spray him!

Oh grandma... Haha. She's a one a of a kind.
