Fresh snow on the ground, snares and traps set for the bobcat, and banana bread baking in the oven. Just a regular Saturday morning around here.

Aside

A trapper came out this afternoon to confirm that we do have a bobcat problem, or a problem bobcat. He’ll be back tomorrow with a “bigger” trap.

Survivors

Pirate Garage Chicken of Doom.
Two disciples of Tree Chicken.
Two roosters.
Some other Easter eggers.
The last Tractor Supply chicken.
One silver-laced Wyandotte.
Four (out of 17) guinea fowl.

Casualties

Tree Chicken.
Wayne and Garth.
The Barred Rock.
Some guinea fowl.

Aside

Around noon, Marcus reported that New Wayne (previously known as Garth) and the barred rock were definitely deceased and a guinea was missing. The rest of the birds were cowering in the relative safety of the coop, including the remaining four guineas.

He spent the afternoon tracking what might be a bobcat to a den down near the creek, where he found parts of the missing guinea. (As he said, tracking in the snow is pretty easy, just follow the trail of bird bits.)

The only silver lining in this whole disaster is that he was able to lock all of the remaining birds in the coop with food and water prior to tonight’s massive temperature dip, which would have probably been bad for the guineas in their stupid tree.
