Peter,

   Those don't look like neighbors to me. Looks more like tenants from where I sit. :D

    Nice picture. I hope y'alll get along well.

The last year we lived at our last house we had 4 dens within a mile, it was fun watching the pups play around.  Our actual neighbor didn't care for it much because he had free range chickens  :D.

That's the first thing I thought of too, sorry!  We had free range chickens but locked up every night and had problems with foxes coming around.  The neighbor a few places down had a little shed way out back and the momma used under that for a den.  One person thinks cute, another thinks rascal and shoots.  To each his own - I hope they're good neighbors for you.

Went out to the mill today and found this little guy.

  

 
Sharp teeth. :D

Looking at it something bit it. Teeth marks on top of the back and on the belly.
What would have killed it and not eat it??

I have had chickens,pigs, cows, turkeys, quail,dogs,cats,
And not one time have I had trouble with the wildlife,
One time I had a fox on one side of the fence and a chicken on the other. Wish I had a pic of that.
They were there looking at each other.4' away from each other. :D :D :D

When we had the greenhouse business,wife was standing talking to a customer in the driveway,chicken about 10 feet from her,I turned just in time to see her throw a water jug at a fox that came out of the woods to dine at The C Farm.  :D Fox dropped the chicken,but broke it's leg. Kinda brave,but wanted to eat. I like to have the critters out and about. My dog was out in the woods when all this was going on.
The guy above keeps his in a pen and does not have any problems.
At one time I think I had 40 critters here, Ducks,geese,chickens. All gone due to the sign,eat at The C Farm.  :D
We are slowly getting more fodder for the wildlife to dine on.

My friend said he had an airstrike on his free range chiggens, and foxes give him trouble too.  He likes to sit on the back deck with a plinking machine to shoot them (but he couldn't hit the broad side of a barn if he was standing inside of it lol)

A hobby farmer had about 80 chickens free ranging . One week he lost 15 chickens , he had seen a fox so he always carried a rifle with him. He shot 9 foxes in two weeks.

Well, There was one time where a Bear went into the chicken pen. So the chickens were running around in the yard. I went to see why. There was a bears back side sticking out of the open door. So I snuck up on him and gave him hell for eating the chicken food.
The bear never came back, I did scare the crap out of him. :D :D :D

We need to get another furry buddy. We've been trapping groundhogs that are dining in the high tunnel. I went up the road to let one out the other evening. I should have known he wouldn't go the way I intended. He took off out of the trap like a shot, down the hill, across the road and BONG! right into a gate  :D.

Oh let's see, lettuce and spinach are about finished up, the critters got the beans. 'Maters are climbing the strings. Peppers are set out, cukes and zuchs should be coming in for market this week. Nasturtiums which are a pretty flower and are yummy stuffed with cream cheese and pepper jelly, we have a hummingbird stuck in there tonite but set out some water and he has plenty of blooms so should be ok. Beets and carrots are in but will be a bit yet. There are peppers and maters outside as well but this is setting up to be a blight year. We had garlic scapes with rainbows and brookies the other night. Blueberries should be in in a few weeks, strawberries are coming in now, raspberries are a few weeks off yet. I wandered outside the tunnel for all of that last and prolly missed a few, Michelle grows stuff, I cut stuff down, but I do like to eat  ;D

I've seen a couple of foxes hit in the road the past few days, one had run alongside my truck earlier, there must have been a den too close to the road.

 A few days ago I went up into the woods where we had made a beam. I had left a ladder up there and went to retrieve it. We had kind of left that area alone when we saw a newborn fawn sleeping in our fresh laps. I had spotted mamma in there later so I knew there was still a nursery going on. Well when I went in bambi was chasing a squirrel and bouncing around carefree. She spotted me and came up within about 10 feet without a bit of fear, checked me out and then went bouncing off on the next adventure of the morning.
