Game Cams Are Fun, as Are Calves

I may have mentioned that we got a game cam to check on what was attacking the birds. We finally got it going and ran it for a few days.

This shows me and Kathleen sneaking up on the chickens.

I have to say I’m impressed with the quality of the pictures you get. I didn’t save many, but I’ll get more tomorrow. The fun ones are giant chicken heads and flying/stretching. Look at Gray Greta!

Look at my wingzzzz!
Wow. This is late at night.

We did get one intruder.

Chris checking for skunks at 9:14 pm. Eek!

You can see they all line up on one branch. Actually most night photos show Bruce on patrol. Good Bruce. I’ll get more to share later. But aren’t the photos good?

Stretch!

Little Rip

I was glad to see our skinny baby bull calf made it through last night. He slept a lot today, but perked up enough to play with Gracie a bit.

Friends.

Like with a human baby, early poops and pees are important. He got in the groove this evening and peed three times. That means he’s hydrated.

A calf has to go when he has to go.

The poor fellow is still a bit unsteady on his legs, so getting up or down is hard.

I was trying to lie down, but I think I’ll get back up.

He really has long legs. Kathleen spends as much time as she can with him, and he is bonding well.

Rip’s shelter.

She even made him a little shade house. Soon he will have a nice place to live, so he will be fine. Can’t wait until he meets Fiona.

I gots spindly legs.

  1. Hi Sue Ann, that camera looks like it does an amazing job. Love the ‘chook’ shots. I’m glad Australia doesn’t have skunks, but we do have foxes and even dogs that sometimes raid the chicken pen. Is it rude to ask for more details about what sort of camera you’re using?

    1. The one I got was the highest rated on Amazon. Its only negatives are using lots of batteries and that Amazon mislead me into getting the wrong memory card. It takes tiny ones. You also need to get something to read the card. https://www.amazon.com/Campark-Waterproof-Monitoring-120%C2%B0Detecting-Activated/dp/B07BHLVXF7?pd_rd_w=0lhO0&pf_rd_p=b1335604-246e-4b5e-8fbd-a1c826ead4a3&pf_rd_r=14TN37TM2G0WPMAQWPK8&pd_rd_r=c1506159-6b81-48b9-81cd-479fd4429282&pd_rd_wg=M157j&pd_rd_i=B07BHLVXF7&ref_=pd_bap_m_rp_1_14_dc
