Reply To: Raccoon trying to get my chickens.
I haven’t had any trouble with raccoons since I piled up a few with .22 shorts. This was before I got my .25 marauder. I tried with a .177 daisy 1000 springer but it didn’t kill them. Not that I witnessed anyway. My wife raises coturnix quail for eggs and meat, Serama chickens for eggs and meat, and full size chickens for eggs. The quail are Not the smartest of birds and the raccoons (trash pandas are what we call them) reach through the cage and rip quail through the wire at night. Damn those beasts!
