The turkeys and chickens are safe once again. We took care of their main predator this morning after losing approximately 11 poults (turkey chicks), the mean rooster, and several laying hens. I saw the fox a couple mornings ago so we had a visual on the enemy. Bob posted the next morning but he did not show. This morning we were both up at 4:30. Finally, at 6:00 from the hayloft window the enemy was eliminated.
This is such a relief for me. Our farm took a big loss due to that varmit. But that's part of the farming adventure with animals afoot. Now we'll move on nurturing the remaining livestock and enjoying the beautiful green summer season.
