This Week at Homegrown Self Reliance

We lost a turkey this week. First, the ducks, and now a full-grown turkey. We knew we were dealing with a predator – and not a small one! So we set up a couple of trail cameras near the now-empty duck pen and the chicken coop. The next morning, we found what we’re dealing with.

Want to know what we found? Go here to see!

If you’d like more tips and tricks on keeping your chickens safe from predators, you can read my post here:
