I assume these electric tractors are limited to pulling? How long will an electric tractor pull an implement such as a plow or disc? I also assume it's unable to drive the PTO for a cycle mower or brush hog?
Carol, I'd like to think the dog would have enough sense to get down once it got too hot. Ha! I believe the dog you're seeing is actually a reflection in the glass! If you watch the video before that you'll see the dog do the circle thing and then lay down in the grass.
If that option doesn't work perhaps you could allow someone to shoot them who is willing to eat them? Or find someone who will take the ones you shoot?
With that said, each state has their own hunting and trapping seasons you'll want to look into before going one of those routes. Most states do allow nuisance animals to be taken out of season. Those are typically a completely different set of rules than those for hunting or trapping.

Say again? Excuse me for asking but growing up on a farm, having worked on farms, and having family members who work in tractor repair I've never heard of or seen this practiced. We add weight to front of our equipment to keep the front end from "floating" while pulling a load or an implement. Weight over the rear wheels isn't typically a concern. How have you seen this practiced?
Tim, did you make a decision on what to get? I've long been a big fan of the red sexlinks but this will be my last year with them. I wanted to simplify things around here and go with one breed that will breed true that I can use for eggs and meat. We ended up ordering Silver Laced Wyandotte chicks to replace our current flock of misc breeds. We will stick with one breed this time around so we KNOW we can pick up any fresh eggs and know what will hatch from that egg and can rest assured the Wyandotte will breed true.
I am of the belief that chickens are similar to dogs in that they have established pecking orders. Others don't always agree, but I feel a rooster attacks because it sees its self and not the humans as "top dog". My 5 and 7 year old girls have been taught to stand up to aggressive roosters and to give them a "soft boot" in the rear if they get aggressive. Our roosters know their place in the pecking order.
I''ll try and include the picture of my daughter who brought Big Ben in for a visit if I can figure out how to attach a photo.
