Naughty ferret

The ongoing battle against nature.
Unfortunately if we want to protect our chickens (and local bird-life) we need to control the pests that prey on them.

We trapped this ferret with some old cat food, out near our chook house.

You can guess what happened next. At least he'll contribute his elements to our compost.

Mouse trappin'

With this year being a mast year for native beech trees there have been an epic number of mice about.
I've lost count of how many we (and the cat) have caught. I have even witnessed the chooks chase down and eat a couple that I disturbed in a grass pile.
