Raccoon attack

Chicken on waterer

At two months old, our pullets are big enough to perch on their waterer but not quite big enough to survive a raccoon attack.

I think we only lost one bird.

Regardless, we'll keep shutting them in at night a little longer.

We've had a raccoon kill two full grown chickens and a pekin duck (she was less than three months old) recently. We're in upstate NY - wildlife pressure on our chickens and ducks has been incredible this spring.
