There was a post here some time back about crows. Well, after years of farmin, they finally found us, and our eggs. I like to go out to the yard several times a day and collect eggs from nests that are prone to being eaten. ON a few occaisios, I have set them on a table, and forgot about them. Go back to get them and they are gone. I even cleaned up a nest that hatching eggs were in. There were DIS, and I took them out, intending to freeze them for a guy who feeds them to hawks and owls (rehab), and those got eaten. I took the goose eggs out from under Abigale, since she is broody and they aren't fertile, set them on top of a table where the dogs hang out, and those were gone. Now I have a cawing crow that sits on top of a dead tree in the middle of the yard, every single day. My dog chases it, when she hears it, but he's been silent lately. Now, I know that some of you welcome them, and other's don't. I do not have the means for a bird abatement system, recordings, etc. Here in CA crows are off the list to shoot because the Raven is protected, because some boneheads can't tell the difference between ravens and crows. I still want to peg him with a pellet gun, though. I'm getting worried that they will get a little more brazan and take more than a few eggs...especially since most of my birds hatch out in the open, then I move them to confinement. I don't want any babies snatched before I can move them, and penning when broody isn't an option, there just isn't any room. What would you do?
