This year we seem to be plagued by uninvited critters. At our pumpkin patch, beavers have been causing farming misery. In our yard, the mama raccoon has killed two of our hens to feed her babies. At our house, our carpenter friend Steve discovered termites.
Needless to say, we are trying to eradicate the pests so that our house doesn’t fall down and our fields can remain being farmed. Living with nature is a tricky balance for all. As for the chickens, that’s why I raise replacement hens every year.
There’s always something, isn't there?
