Cat trap

We have had a problem with a raccoon eating the chickens.  Again.  Well, we usually lose half our flock in the winter.  So I went out to check the trap and caught our neighbors cat.  Why?  We used sardines as bait.  I bet we had every cat in the county lined up outside of the cage.  The best part?  I forgot to tell our neighbors.

Spring chickens are kind of wimpy.  We need some not wimpy winter chickens.  But taking care of chicks in the spring and summer is easier than in the winter.  For instance, at least one rooster gets frostbite.

Poor Foghorn Leghorn
Those photos are kind of old.
Now the top part of his comb is completely black.
It stinks but he will live.
