Another blow at the barn. When checking on the new laying chicks I discovered the brooder had been practically ripped apart and 12 of the new chicks had been killed. We placed plywood over the top and secured the sides and last night we set a trap. This morning upon checking I found the creature had revisited and managed to totally move the cage around, eat the bait and spring the trap. Only it was not in it. grrr....
We will continue to try and catch this nasty varmit, most likely another coon and dispose of it.

On a brighter note, another 2 hay fields down today. One looks way more promising with a much thicker crop. The rye grain is drying nicely too. Tomorrow we will get some of it baled and in the barn. A stocked hay loft is as nice as a stocked pantry!
