Predators 6, Farm 1
The lack of an automatic chicken door is starting to catch up with me. I counted chickens tonight after returning from vacation and we are down to 20 hens and 1 rooster. The predators are winning. Our house sitter nabbed a very large raccoon while we were gone so I am counting that one for our team. As usual, the home team is trying to play catch up. Soon, I should have some free time and can message the auto chicken door guy and hopefully get some feed back as to why the door does not work. Until then, we try and lock up the chickens each night. I did lock them up tonight and set the live trap.
