This time of year there are squirrels absolutely everywhere. I’m seeing squirrels in my yard constantly and much to the dogs delight, they are quite persistent in coming back! I let her out to chase them and 20 minutes later, they’re back. This goes on all day long! Since my chickens free range daily, this is a problem.
You see, while squirrels many seem harmless, you really don’t want them getting too comfortable around your chickens for several reasons. Not only can squirrels end up costing you money in feed bills and ruined equipment, they’ll actually go after chicks if they get hungry enough!
