Gotcha...the Egg Thief...

I knew he was there.  I would forget to gather the eggs one day, and the next morning there would be nothing but a few broken egg shells under the "porch", next to a suspicious looking hole under the shed...

Now the thief has been caught...

Did you know that skunks like cat food?  That's what lured him in.  No more eggs for this guy!


  1. So what and where did you take him? How without getting sprayed. I would love to do that but I have always been at a loss with what to do with the culprit. One is under my shed now. Not my hen house luckily.
    They do like cat food. So glad you caught him.

  2. Oh gosh, I'm happy for you that you caught this egg thief. I wonder if he has a family under the porch. I smelled a skunk the other morning on my way to the barn. My husband catches them in this type of trap and relocates them. I never asked him if he covers the cage before he loads it on the back of the truck.

    Happy Easter to you and your family Alica.
    Hugs, Julia

  3. Oh dear....not a good visitor!

  4. Now you have a conundrum. He is just a little guy. Good luck with that.

  5. No, I didn't know that. I smelled one the other day on my walk.


I enjoy hearing what you have to say! Thanks for your comments!
