Moved the trap behind the pen
The picture above is what it looked like before we moved the trap.
This is what it looks like now.
View from the trap door. The little gate is to let them into the pen.
Trap is ready...
3 little pigs....love the one with his tongue sticking out.
We built a copy of Lucas's trap door. It is in the end of the pen and once all the pigs are gone we'll cut the wire and get it ready to go....then we'll have 2 traps.
The Robins have been coming in for water. Big flocks of them...they sit in the bushes and take turns...sometimes it's an hour before all have a drink.
Jim put a water line to it...I keep it on a drip. The squirrels...raccoons...birds all use it.
