Recently we had attacked our chickens by some predator from weasel family, i bet on polecat(Mustela putorius). Two chicken bodies with holes in their neck and one hen body without head all hidden under some wood scraps.
From now rest of our chickens are kept in fine metal fence cages by night.
So i thought might be someone has made some traps for them and could share his experience and/or blueprints, photos?
Thank you all for your replies.
Yesterday i found a hole under summer chicken tractor(not in use now), seems its dug by vermin who is still sniffing around the barn.
So i decided to build a box trap(googled some blueprints) although im not sure why the commercial traps has two entrances? Does it doubles the possibility of catching the predator?
Irene- wow, those are beautiful animals. Do you use chicken or quail eggs?
