After discussing how my pal and I were going to handle the rabbits and groundhogs that were destroying our garden, my husband made the comment that my pal and I still had not made any plans for the deer… When I looked out the window yeahterday afternoon, I noticed it wasn’t only deer that my pal and I are having problems with, but a bear had gotten into the back of our chicken coop, and destroyed it, then i saw the mama bear and his two cubs trying to aggravated our trashcan.
I told my husband what I saw, and he rushed down to check on our chickens; The egg box was completely ripped apart, and all of our baby checks were gone.
The only thing left was a rooster with a broken leg, one with its tail feathers torn off, and two chickens that were too afraid to even come out of the quarter chicken coop, out of 15 chickens and roosters in total, my pal and I had only four left. I knew my husband had had enough, he grabbed the car keys and told me to get in the truck, then my buddy and I were looking for electric fencing. My buddy and I found some electric fencing that looked like stainless wire ties, and obtained the solar generator to electrify the fence. I got a feeling that it’s going to take us the entire week to get all of this electric fencing up around the gardens, and around the chicken coop. I know it’s too late for our 12 baby chicks, but maybe we’ll keep the rest of the chickens from being traumatized, and keep some flowers and vegetables from being destroyed.
