Why do you NOT have chickens?

Built a coop, had 7 hens to start with. Built a nice run. Ended up getting 10 more because a neighbor didn’t want to deal. More eggs than we knew what to do with. My son was born and I had to start traveling more, so they weren’t getting taken care of as well as they should have. Sold them all to a dude. Took the run down, buttoned up the coop. Life has been good. Then this little mofo just wanders the fuck on in, two days ago.

Currently got 7 chickens. Had 8, but I think a bird of prey got one. The eggs are flowing, just about more than we can eat.

We got two 6-finger cats about two years ago. They were outside only and earned their keep. They both disappeared within 72 hours of each other last winter. I'm pretty sure Totes or Owls got them.
Got one outside cat last year. Had a litter and down to one of its babies still around (long story on that one). Though it is pregnant again, it needs to get fixed

They went for a voluntary truck ride. Went to town, fired the truck up shortly after to head home and seen one run out from underneath. Went and dug it out from its hiding spot underneath another car. Brought it home, a couple days later he leaves and one of the other missing ones shows back up.

2 hives, first year bees. Each super is approx. 40# if all honey. Honey will not be very good this year as they missed the spring nectar flow.

With all the coyotes around here anything smaller my lab or my pit would have to come inside at night. Bees might actually be a good way to go.
