yep, gammy legged one gone, and another flew the coup, now there are 4,
My kids are after a few, but I hear they wander a bit. Shouldn’t be two much trouble as we don’t have neighbors for a couple of kms, but worried about foxes getting them.

we have an electric mesh fence round their run and are putting them into the hutch at night atm, i believe they are pretty good at defending themselves when they are bigger but we are yet to see, Emma would be the one with the good oil. my wife is pretty much running the avian department....

Bloody foxes
We are in the middle of lambing & are having at least 1 a night killed
Set up a night vision scope on my rifle today so hopefully tonight I can get it
Dunno where you're based, but surely you can set up a safe place for the lambs.
Mate of mine in west gipps has a few ways to deal with intruders.

Sorry i'm late to the party, but better late than never!

I'm Hatchy, currently residing in the Far North Coast of NSW, near Lismore where the recent floods were. I've had a few stints in the city with Adelaide and most recently Brisbane but i'm living back at home this year to save up and to focus on other things.

Started supporting the Kangas in 2007 when a few of the squad back then came to watch my local u/14's game for a meet and greet. I don't get to go to many games, but I make sure i've gone to every game I possibly can.

Down in western Victoria
We have alpacas out with the lambing ewes & they do a good job except over night
I also bait & gas dens but when you’re lambing down a few thousand they can’t be locked up to tight
I have fenced off the creek on our place and planted plenty of trees there as well as put in heaps of plantations but it is a double edged sword
We now have plenty of native wildlife but also the vermin that use those areas also

yeah iam not really a night owl, would rather be sleeping, especially on freezing cold nights like last night than staying up aiting for foxes to wonder by. the JRTs tend to wake up easy and out the doggie door pretty quick when they hear something, but i reckon plenty are false alarms.

I grew up in Ballarat, joined the Army and lived in exotic places like Wagga Wagga and Townsville before moving back to Victoria having lived in Seymour and now residing in Geelong :)

What fun things are you going to make?

I suggest miniature cannons that you fill with black powder and fire ball-bearings.
Nothing so creative to begin with, mainly stuff like cylinder rams, lynch pins, auger adapters and the like.
