    How do you re-enforce against snakes? They can even get through chicken wire.
    My chickies were all accounted for this morning and getting back to normal after the coyote attack. Poor little wyandootte has a bare butt but seems to be walking and running around better.
    Today, I have to start picking Japanese apple pears. We have one tree that is 25+ feet high and the best pears are always at the top. I cut it back once but it grew around the cut and now there are twice as many up there:confused:
    Sometimes I just leave them for the crows although it is against my nature.

    Our pear tree still has a couple of pears up high on it too. Might leave them for crows too.:)

    Hardware cloth, instead of chicken wire. But now we will have to settle for chicken wire. Except for bottom. Anyway, its time to get them out of the living room. Soon as hubby feels like it.

    We bought 24 rolls of paper towels but that also means changing them out which is no fun when you bend down with stuffy head and dizzy. They are going out today. I'll put up picture later.

    We got them moved to outside now, they are not happy, but they will be later on, I hope.
    I had to keep talking to them to calm them down ,they have a box of dirt to play in now too.

    I wasn't trying to make fun of you. I have had babies in my shower lined with paper and cleaned it every day. But the smell was still of chickies.:confused:
