And Then There Were Two

Hens Our three little red hens are down to two.  We found one missing yesterday morning.  I am blaming the raccoon we let go free last week.   If we catch it again, I’ll shoot it myself.  We spent the afternoon replacing the back wall of the chicken barn.  It needed to be done, just happened sooner than later.  Originally built as a horse barn, it used to have a 5 inch opening at the roofline and a few rotting spots near the dirt.  We repurposed our old deck boards to make it secure.  Thankfully, everyone was accounted for this morning.

    Oh no! I know the coons are cute but they sure can be little shits. We aren’t so kind with those that stumble into our traps. It might not be nice for the racoon but our critters are a bit safer.
