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.
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!
We did get one intruder.
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?
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.
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.
The poor fellow is still a bit unsteady on his legs, so getting up or down is hard.
He really has long legs. Kathleen spends as much time as she can with him, and he is bonding well.
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.

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?

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
The reader I got works on any phone and has a USB connector for a computer. I have to take my phone case off to use it, which is slightly annoying. https://www.amazon.com/your-orders/pop/ref=ppx_yo_mob_b_pop?_encoding=UTF8&gen=canonical&lineItemId=ljmoltmssoonsny&orderId=114-5974310-5645846&packageId=1&returnSummaryId=&returnUnitIndices=&returnUnitMappingId=&shipmentId=DBKc8dG3S
Thanks I found lots on amazon. Which brand do you recommend?
Mine is fine. But I don’t know if one is better or worse.
