BeauBear,

One of my Aunt/Uncle pairs live on a now defunct dairy farm. They have a really cool barn. As kids, my cousins and I would go up to the loft and play basketball and build forts. Down below was a tack/feed room. My cousin taught me how to kick a feed bag and watch mice pop out. Fun times back then!

We build Forts to (in hay mow), one was elaborate with a wooden trap door (we hand built, in garage).

The big Rat that scared me, was slightly smaller than a small cat.

I had a pig. Her name was Petunia. She was a Duroc. And, Yes, I kissed her on the nose. Are you all still going to be my friends?

Cow Pies MEL - does not a Frisbee make / as Farm kids, we saw many of them, in the barn yard.
- just more interested, in stepping around them, and keeping them off our running shoes and hands

SP - Lil Sis, Beau would have liked to see that slip-up...

"Cow Pies MEL - does not a Frisbee make"

Correct. But I will tell you what does: What we used to call "flat squirrels" or "flat rabbits".

They get run over (several times) on a hot highway and then pretty much just desiccate to a nice tanned piece of hide. You pick them up and toss them just like a Frisbee!

Well... Theoretically. It never really worked that well. LOL

STJ!

We had flat toads on the streets where I grew up. But I never thought of anything as perverted as tossing them around.

Must be a guy thing.

Beau's grade8 Hay, Fireworks & Chit Pile mischief...time to come clean !!

Mom had to drive to our other 50 acres farm, half a mile down the road...and check dryness, of raked hay.
- so my twin, neighbor and 6-7 knew we had a 30-60 minute window, alone on the farm

As soon as Mom drove off, we ran into the house and grabbed my firecrackers, in my dresser bedroom.
- we had a big maple tree, that grew close to the road
- so us kids hid behind the tree trunk & watched for cars on the Hwy. (passing by)

So we timed the burn rate of one firecracker and the estimated launch timing, for the blast / igniting under a car, travelling at 60 mph (in our direction).
- after a handful of ill timed dudes / we started to get the hand of it
- 30 minutes in, we timed a perfect mini-explosions / under someones vehicle floor boards
- by the time the driver, figured out what just happened / he slammed on his breaks, 1/10 of a mile down the road
- and speedily put his car in reverse, and backed up to the farm house

We ran for our lives and I cleared the fence, with one remarkable jump...simply an Adrenalin accomplishment.
- now us kids, hiding behind the manure pile / knowing, "nobody will check here"
- all the lights on, in the house / no door locked
- after 5 minutes looking for us kids, driver drove off
- we came out of hiding, thinking...missed that fight

We put the firecrackers away / and waited like good boys, for moms return...in 15 minutes.

PS - the next day I was talking to another neighbor boy / across the road.
- he was in his bed, that night and heard a firecracker...every time he heard a car (drive by)
- so for the next half hour, this kid watched us / out his bedroom window...pissing himself laughing

I'm sorry.

I really am. Can you share what happened??
That fox cleaned house after I let the girls out. Must have been watching me go back in the house.

I will order a new flock after we finish their enclosed outdoor space. My fault. We never finished that part and the girls were ranging pretty far.

Sorry about the demise of your flock...
I guess you've proven once again the "fox in the hen house" principle.



Don't forget about this including this item in your outdoor chicken enclosure...
(plus a Dobe and/or Donkey to ward off fox/coyote attacks?)

I have zero chickens.
I know that feeling! I had a pasture that i kept about a dozen goats. I had many years of zero issues , along the way i lost a few very young ones to predators and added a donkey to help ward them off. This donkey became abusive to the females that were pregnant since i would feed them different food and he did not understand so i re-homed him. Soon after this the properties around me were developed , most of this property was citrus and some was timber and my private dirt road is now 3 lanes. One by one they were picked off by coyotes . The females first and pair of pit bulls took out one of my best young males during the day. My last male was big with horns and could take care of himself and passed from age. It was a sad and helpless situation to do battle with canine types they are relentless and the smallest of opening you leave they will take advantage of it. I will not put myself in that position again to endure the constant loss.

I did not want the donkey that is there now , but a young girl pestered me for months to pasture him and i finally agreed...she was cute. The young girl has since moved on but left me with her donkey. The donkey is a community cared for now , that receives a ridiculous amount of love and attention. I would say he has a excellent life and it would take a pack of wolves to bring him down. He is very old and still have to eye the pasture in the mornings as i am coming in to work , some days he gives me terrible anxiety when he is taking his long sand baths.

To do animal husbandry right it is a full time job .

I like that! But, if I get one of those, my next flock will drown. Chickens can't swim.

Denny Can!

Everybody around here - that has Goats - sheep - and even cattle have a pair of Gentle Giant's ! = problem solved with coyotes + a good 223 is also good for control !

We have a large hog farm close to us = about a 1 and a 1/2 -- the guys that worked there , years ago - would take the dead baby pigs to the back side of the farm = great bait - that summer they shot 32 coyotes - it sure did help around here at the house - but have been seeing a few over at Dads place the past week .

Hey Alan - I getting ready to do a nail trim - come on up and wen we get done we will crank up some music and have a few beers - btw bring big boy with yeah and we do him too : ))
