tiny predators

On the far side of the last pen, something got in the other night. From our count it looked like only one or two chickens were removed.

But this tiny spot? We think weasels have added themselves to our nighttime list of predators. We used to see the things that went after our birds, but now, alas, it is small things.

The fiercest thing we have heard of are weasels. It seems unlikely that a fox or raccoon could squeeze into a spot that small.

But weasels are tiny and blood thirsty.

It appears the dog scared it off, because it was one chicken dead not the entire pen.

Good dog.
